US production house Arts & Sciences is opening an office in London with ex Blink Productions EP and Partner, James Bland at the helm.
A&S was formed in 2010 by Marc Marrie, Matt Aselton, and Mal War.
Arts & Sciences London launches with nine directors/directing teams: Adam & Dave, Mike Warzin, Sean Meehan, Fiona McGee, Anthony Mandler, Shaniqwa & Raj, Alex Prager, Matt Lenski, and co-founder Matt Aselton.
Mal Ward says, “We’ve had our eye on London for a while and we wanted to do this in a very specific and thoughtful way. Fortunately for us, James Bland was willing to partner with some ambitious and somewhat idealistic Americans. Being open ten years, it’s a benchmark moment and we couldn’t be more excited to mark it by establishing our brand and directors in what is arguably one of the best markets in the world.”
James Bland adds, “We are opening with a very refined and focused proposition; extremely talented directors that are committed to the market and want to collaborate with agencies on the best creative work. I’m thrilled to be leading the company in the UK and Europe, and we look forward to supporting great ideas with our elite production team.”
