Mark Pellington is ready to Rumble.

by Andrew MacGregor


American filmmaker Mark Pellington has joined Rumble for UK representation.

The East Londoners are understandably pleased with their latest signing. Rumble’s varied portfolio make Pellington a shrewd addition; whether it’s long form or short form work, the Baltimore native delivers polished results.

Pellington cut his teeth during MTV’s heydey. Having started as a producer, Pellington graduated to shooting promos himself. For example, his video for Pearl Jam’s ‘Jeremy’ remains an industry standout.

As is often the case for really successful promo directors, Pellington transferred to the big screen. His reel encompasses everything from domestic terrorism (‘Arlington Road’) to wistful drama (‘Nostalgia’). Rumble are now anticipating Pellington’s next foray into commercials.

He’s already shot a piece of branded content for Aston Martin starring NFL quarterback Tom Brady. Meanwhile, this graphic gun control ad shows Pellington is willing to challenge audiences - just the kind of attitude Rumble are looking for.

Rumble consider Pellington’s arrival a statement of intent. Stay tuned for what else Creative Director Reza Dolatabadi and Executive Producer Fritzi Nicolaus have in store this year.
