Director and DP duo Tourist, consisting of Mitch Green and Louis English have joined Eight. The two dropped out of film school and established reputation work centered on real human stories.
Their work for Crust Pizza saw them land a coveted spot in New Director SHOOT 2020’s showcase with awards and recognition from Ad Stars, AWARD and Immortals.
âWe are delighted to join the Eight team. When we met Lib, Jess, Katie and the team, we knew we had come to the right place. They are a forward-thinking group with an ethical stance that resonates with us. As a director / DP duo our approach is obviously a bit on the left, but the talent we’ve encountered here and the support we’ve received to work our way has been fantastic, âsaid Tourist.
The visual style of both combines contemporary, immersive sensibility with classic cinematic imagery and ultra-precise cutting style.
“The work of the tourists immediately impressed us,” said Eight, production manager and executive producer Lib Kelly.
âThey have a distinctive, vibrant style that adds something really fresh to our list. They are really lovely, smart guys with energy and ideas at their fingertips and we are very happy to have them in the building.
