Director Ridley Scott has brought together all the RSA Films affiliated companies in a multi-business restructure to form the Ridley Scott Creative Group.
The restructure comes as part of a plan for the companies to “take advantage of emerging opportunities across all entertainment genres as well as their existing work in film, television, branded entertainment, commercials, VR, short films, documentaries, music video, design and animation, and photography. “
Luke Scott will take the role of Global CEO, working with Founder Ridley Scott, and partners Jake and Jordan Scott, to oversee the future strategic direction of the group.
“We are in a new golden age of entertainment,” Ridley Scott said. “The world’s greatest brands, platforms, agencies, new entertainment players and studios are investing hugely in entertainment. We have brought together our talent, capabilities and creative resources under the Ridley Scott Creative Group, and I look forward to maximising the creative opportunities we now see unfolding with our executive team.”
The companies will continue to operate autonomously, but will offer clients “synergy” under the group offering. The Group includes commercial production company RSA Films, music video production company Black Dog Films, entertainment marketing company 3AM, commercial production company Hey Wonderful, newly founded UK commercial production company Darling Films and film and television production company Scott Free (Gladiator, “Taboo,” The Martian, “The Good Wife”), which continues to be led by David W. Zucker-President, US Television, Kevin Walsh-President, US Film, and Ed Rubin-Managing Director, UK Television/Film.
“Our Scott Free Films and Television divisions are producing their best ever work and have an unprecedented number of movies and shows in production,” said Luke Scott, Global CEO of the Ridley Scott Creative Group. “We are also seeing a huge appetite for branded entertainment from our brand and agency partners to run alongside high quality commercials. Our entertainment marketing division 3AM is extending its capabilities to all our partners, while Black Dog is moving into short films and breaking new, world-class talent. It is a very exciting time to be working in entertainment.”
