Commenting on the announcement, Anne-Marie Curran, founder and managing director of Arrow Films said: “We are thrilled to welcome Brian Williams to Arrow Films. We are long-time fans of Brian’s work and are excited to have this opportunity to collaborate with him on projects that showcase his unique approach, allowing us to continue delivering high standards of production with creative and effective advertising.”
Williams has a well-deserved reputation for creating high calibre, visually-stunning commercials. His work has won many awards and worldwide acclaim for its cutting-edge use of traditional film-making combined seamlessly with ground-breaking, computer-generated imagery.
“After a year of massive change for me, both technically and creatively, Arrow was the perfect fit in my beloved home market. I work hard to stay up with and ahead of the curve and even though these are strange times for sure, a lot of amazing things are happening because of the challenges. The timing for joining Anne-Marie and team felt right.”, continued Williams.
