London based CMN PPL FLMS announce the signing of Virgil Ferragut for commercial representation. 

A true creative with a wide variety of skills, Ferragut brings automotive directing talent to the roster. Born in Paris and bred in Madrid, Ferragut left the land of the Blazing Sun to forge his way through the foggy world of filmmaking in London where he honed his skills in design and film at Central Saint Martins in London.

Shortly after, Ferragut made waves in the international market where he has worked on many ground-breaking high-profile campaigns for clients such as Ikea, Volkswagen, Amazon, Vodafone, Coca-Cola, Uniliever, Orange, McDonald’s, Visa, Etisalat, Verti and Sony among many others.

Ferragut has received many international awards including; 1 D&AD Yellow Pencil, 2 Cannes Awards nominations, 2 Golden CdeC Awards, 1 Gold ADC Awards 97th, 4 Gold Loeries in 2018 and 2020, 1 London International Awards at LIA 2018, 4 Dubai Lynx awards in 2018 and 2020. And nominations for the Berlin Fashion Film festival and the Bokeh South African Film Festival.

Emily Crofton-Atkins says: “Virgil is a force - he’s going to be very successful here in the UK market and we’re delighted to have him join our roster. He makes sure that every script he sees gets to a calibre that is reel worthy. An ambition and passion that we really admire here at CMN PPL. We can’t wait to work with him and are greatly looking forward to this journey.”

Virgil Ferragut adds: “I’m really excited to join a team with such a brave and inspiring spirit and with whom I had a very strong connection with from the beginning. It arrives at a moment where I feel I need to amplify my challenges to the UK market and keep growing as a director, which is exactly what Common People Films can offer me.”

It’s a creative, inspiring house, working with people who have a hand in various parts of the industry. I can’t wait to see what we cook up together!

"I’ve always loved strong design, in all its facets, and I think about projects more holistically in terms of film, digital, design, and experience as interconnected storytelling mediums. I want to show beauty in all things. Everything from scriptwriting, casting, cinematography, styling, lighting, editing and color grading. It’s all equally important to me in pursuit of a single goal: films that amaze and have a voice.

I’m happy to be joining this kind of company that has a very forward-thinking outlook on directing and what filmmakers can do."
