We’re happy to announce a new creative alliance with influential British film director Nick Egan. The project? An upcoming documentary about internationally renowned creativity expert and author Sir Ken Robinson, whose revolutionary ideas about education are spurring a radical reexamination of the entire educational process.
Egan, whose influential work in graphic design and music video is credited with helping to shape music and fashion culture since the early days of the punk rock revolution, has always been drawn to the eccentric, the innovative, the ground-breaking. He has worked with hundreds of innovative artists including Oasis, Alanis Morisette, Mick Jagger, Sonic Youth, Duran Duran, Iggy Pop, and INXS, as well as with celebrated fashion designers Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood. With creative powerhouse Propaganda Films, Egan earned a reputation as one of the world’s premiere music video directors, as well as an innovative commercial director creating spots for major brands including Coca Cola, Levi’s, Nike, Nintendo and Sony Play Station.
The story of Sir Ken, a highly-respected, visionary thinker knighted 2003 for his work examining the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, fits right into Egan’s stable of fascinating characters who refuse to accept the status quo.
Our co-founder and Creative Director Samantha Hart first crossed paths with Egan nearly 20 years ago while working at Geffen Records in Los Angeles. “I have great respect for Nick as an artist and creative visionary. His work over the years has yielded some of the most seminal music videos and iconic album cover art of our time, as well as unforgettable television commercials. I feel like we’ve come full circle to find ourselves working together again. It is with great pride that Foundation becomes associated with Nick on this film about the incredible Sir Ken Robinson.”
