Tom Schlagkamp to Direct Spots via Saville
Saville signed director Tom Schlagkamp for exclusive commercial directorial representation in North America.
Schlagkamp is best known for the short music-themed film "The Rock 'n' Roll Manifesto" for German magazine Visions (it's narrated by Pantera's Phil Anselmo), which won first place at Cannes Young Director Awards 2013.
Schlagkamp got into the business as a sound and light tech, then moved into editing and motion graphics design before studying directing at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.
"Tom adds a raw, real visual style and shows a deep understanding of storytelling," said Saville Executive Producer Rupert Maconick in a prepared statement. "He is able to find creative solutions for smaller budgets."
