International animation and film production company Passion Pictures, with offices in NY, London, Paris and Melbourne, has signed L.A.-based director Joshua Harvey for exclusive worldwide representation.
Harvey was previously creative director at Buck where he co-led, designed and animated films in various visual styles for clients including MTV, Honda, Telstra and ChildLine. His work has been honored with awards from numerous shows including the Clios, LIAs, and ADC Designism. In 2013 he was named one of Young Guns’ Top 30 Under 30.
Harvey said he was drawn to Passion’s range of high-quality storytelling across different platforms. He is also looking forward to being involved in Passion’s forays into storytelling via new technology such as virtual reality. “I’m excited to have such an experienced team to work with, specifically one that doesn’t shy away from new frontiers,” enthused the director. “Beyond elevating the quality of productions I’ve done in the past, I’m looking ahead to more non-linear storytelling and interactive design and gaming. The potential for VR is extremely interesting to me and I’d love to do some work in that arena.”
Colin Pearsall, exec producer of Passion Pictures NY, said: “It’s hard to find directors whose visual range is as diverse as Joshua’s. His work evokes emotion and spirit with a naïve and stylized aesthetic. He’s the ideal complement to our growing U.S. roster.”
