After almost 20 years of representation with the critically acclaimed production house Sweetshop, director Noah Marshall is partnering with Ngaio McCreadie as managing director to open a boutique Australasian production offering.
Marshall is best known for his work on international campaigns for brands including Nike, McDonald’s, Sony, Audi, Chase, Mercedes, Toyota, Barclays, Telstra, General Motors, Heineken, Coca-Cola. His films have been recognised at all of the major award shows, including D&AD, Cannes, One Show, the CLIOs, AICP and the London International Awards, amongst others.
Says Marshall: “Being independent will give us greater opportunity in both choosing what we work on, and importantly, how we run it. As a kiwi living and working in this part of the world, I’m looking forward to being more accessible and active in this market.”
McCreadie, who brings a wealth of experience from the advertising landscape, has enjoyed nearly two decades working for leading agencies including roles as board partner at BBH London and on the global leadership team at 72andSunny, recently spearheading the successful launch of offices into Australia and Singapore. She has led iconic work for The Guardian, Axe, Johnny Walker, Google and ASOS online fashion.
Says McCreadie: “We have observed a clear global trend towards smaller, more bespoke offerings in production and are looking forward to innovating within this space in Australia and New Zealand to create world class film, with a highly agile and tailored approach.”
Noah continues to be represented internationally by partners Rakish USA, Circle Canada, Quad France and Zauberberg Germany.
