Flying Fish signs NZ filmmaker Christine Jeffs

Christine_Jeffs_PR_V01.jpgFlying Fish has signed acclaimed New Zealand filmmaker Christine Jeffs to its roster.

Says James Moore, EP and MD at Flying Fish: "We've had an ongoing relationship with Christine and it's great to be able to make her representation with us official. Christine's delicate charm and craft in her work is something to admire. She is an exceptionally talented and a very experienced performance and drama director."
Jeffs brings with her a wealth of knowledge when it comes to emotive and cinematic film making, long and short form. Her most notable work, directing eloquent and charming 'Sunshine Cleaning' staring Emily Blunt, Amy Adams and Alan Arkin, 'Sylvia' with Gwyneth Paltrow and Daniel Craig and Christine's first feature "Rain" was selected for "Directors Fortnight" at the Cannes International Film Festival.  No NZ film has been selected in this prestigious category since. "Rain" was sold internationally and screened theatrically around the world, including a US domestic release. It was selected for many international film festivals including Sundance, Toronto, and was hailed by critics worldwide.

Jeffs' most recent commercial work includes directing the latest BP campaigns with Ogilvy. She has won numerous advertising awards over the years including Cannes Lions.

Says Jeffs: "With my feature film focus, joining Fish is the perfect match. I am excited to work in an environment that understands and values specifically what feature film experience brings to commercials and that champions the connection between great performance and great commercials.  I will fit right into what is a top notch family of directors and producers, many whom have already been part of my journey."
