Former Mill COO Darren O’Kelly and Executive Creative Director Neil Davies have launched a new independent creative studio, Untold Studios, in east London.
The new studio opens with 20 award-winning artists, creators, producers and technologists, with that number set to double by the end of this year.
Based in a 6,000ft² space in the White Collar Factory building on Silicon Roundabout in London, the company is a “creative community for world-class visual artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, animators and sound designers.”
Untold Studios has “a number” of projects already in development, including producing an original feature length documentary with the Sundance Award-winning team behind ‘The Summit’ and collaborating on high profile advertising agency campaigns and episodic TV series.
Untold Studios is an entirely cloud based studio underpinned by a next-generation technology digital infrastructure. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has built an Untold Studios laboratory at AWS and are providing hardware, processing and rendering capabilities in a secure and encrypted MPAA approved environment.
Darren (CEO, Darren O’Kelly) said: “Untold Studios is built for the future. The worlds of advertising, entertainment and technology are intersecting like never before and we’re building a creative studio that enables commissioners to create world-class content.”
Neil (CCO, Neil Davies) said: “Creativity and people are at the heart of Untold Studios. We’re genuinely excited to create a collaborative culture where we support each other and share a common optimism for the future.”
Dorfman Media Holdings, chaired by Sir Lloyd Dorfman CBE, founder of the Travelex Group, has taken a significant minority interest in the company. Charles Dorfman, CEO of Dorfman Media Holdings, joins the board. In addition Pat Joseph, co-founder of The Mill, joins the board as non-executive director.
