It's COMPULSORY for Tim Kelly.

by Andrew MacGregor

 
 

Documentary filmmaker Tim Kelly has joined COMPULSORY for commercial representation.

The inquisitive Australian has so far covered Brexit, Russian football, and the Montreal music scene on his travels, with a piece on fireworks in Berlin also in development. Now he's keen to explore adland further.


Kelly has already worked with COMPULSORY on a Labour Party film ahead of the 2019 General Election, and executive producer Kadri Mahmoud is keen to see what else his new signing is capable of: "This is a true filmmaker with a distinct voice and approach to story-telling, something I want to catalyse and see in mad, unexpected environments."


I look forward to testing our relationship in the future as I pitch increasingly absurd feature length ideas and demand they get a better couch for napping on.

Mahmoud adds: "The documentarian in Tim is something that particularly excites me as COMPULSORY is continuing to push the format in both its commercial and film departments. Tim will no doubt shatter our expectations, and likely our schedules too."


For Kelly, the wait has been worth it: "Since the first time we worked together on the I'm Voting Labour film in 2019, being on the COMPULSORY roster was one of the things I wanted the most in the world - I am absolutely chuffed to be signed.

"It's a space where I can honestly be myself as a person and a director. I look forward to testing our relationship in the future as I pitch increasingly absurd feature length ideas and demand they get a better couch for napping on."
