Revolver is excited to announce that Sydney based director Dani Pearce will be joining its team.
Pearce’s work focuses on visually driven narrative and sits at the intersection of film, photography and art. Most evident in her short film Backpedal, a surreal reflection of a young woman lamenting her teen years and the death of a friend.
The success of Backpedal and her debut short film Nursed Back has seen Pearce receive the 2019 Cannes Young Director Award, and was part of the Saatchi and Saatchi New Creators Showcase. She was further announced as the LIA New Director and received Gold at Ciclope for New Talent in Direction. However, most notably she was invited to 2020 Sundance Film Festival where Backpedal was the only Australian short film in competition.
Says Pip Smart, EP, Revolver: “Anyone who has seen Dani’s work and met her knows she’s an impressive voice of the future. She’s been so highly awarded and snapped up for representation around the world for a reason. We’re honoured to be working with her and thrilled to help her launch her career.”
Says Michael Ritchie, managing director, Revolver: “Its has been a tough time of late, but now that we are seeing some positivity and work genuinely starting to return, we feel we cannot delay Dani’s capabilities any longer.”
