Milo Blake signs to Spindle
Milo Blake, a director known for his emotionally visceral promos for artists such as Rachel Chinouriri, Kam Bu, Willow Kayne and prxz, has signed to the director's roster at London-based production company Spindle.
Technically-savvy and creatively bold, Blake's promos have been featured at SXSW, the UKMVAs, Shiny Awards, and many other festivals. His recent music video for Lava La Rue's Magpie has been nominated at this year’s UKMVAs in the Best Alternative Video Newcomer category.
Early collaborations with local musicians quickly led to bigger opportunities for a range of artists, and he’s now making a name for himself as one of the most talented up-and-coming directors working in UK music videos.
On his signing to Spindle, Blake says: "I’m so happy to be joining Spindle, a studio that carries the same desires and ambitions for inventive, groundbreaking work made with care and humanity to the individuals involved," says Blake. "This is the infrastructure I’ve been seeking out for a long time, and am so excited to see what we create together."
Nosisa Majuqwana, Spindle's Head of Music and New Talent adds: "Milo is an exciting new addition to the Spindle roster, with his visually captivating and innately energetic work. He’s already established himself within the music video industry, and we’re all extremely delighted to work alongside him, to further develop his skills and opportunities with artists, brands and agencies."
