FRIEND London's UK roster now boasts filmmaker and fisheye lens lover Pedro Takahashi. After a fruitful spell as Daniel Wolfe's assistant, Takahashi is ready to make the director's chair his own with the help of EP Luke Jacobs.
That suits Takahashi down to the ground: "I am beyond excited to be joining Friend as part of their UK roster. They’ve been on my radar for a while now as a company with impeccable taste and an inimitable ability to recognise and nurture young talent.
"As well as representing a number of directors whose work I greatly admire, they have an amazing in-house team who immediately made me feel at home. I can't wait to get stuck in and start making new work with them." Expect 2024 to be a busy year for the promo prodigy.
"We are very excited to have Pedro on board," Jacobs says. "His journey so far has been extraordinary—his Sam Akpro video is next-level, and really caught my attention. He is a visionary who has a unique ability to bring ideas to life on the screen and we can't wait to help him produce more standout work."
