Global production company Sweetshop has signed comedy director Trevor Clarence for representation in Australia.
Clarence has been described as having the wit of Cristiano Ronaldo and the body of Will Ferrell. He loves making ads. People tend to love making ads with him. He brings a cinematic touch to his comedy. Whether it’s designing the camera language, crafting a drum solo or workshopping a character with the actor, he uses his passionate in-depth love of every aspect of comedy and filmmaking to create compelling and hilarious films. He has a past as a successful stand-up comedian, feature filmmaker, actor, musician and yoga teacher. Well, maybe not a successful yoga teacher, but he has some certificates.
Says Edward Pontifex, managing director of Sweetshop Australia: “What can’t Trevor Clarence do? I’m looking forward to finding out as we start on this journey that involves making ads and daily yoga lessons.”
Clarence had this to say about the signing: ”A little while ago I texted my mate Greg Fyson to go for a beer and he said he couldn’t ‘cos he was in a PPM. Then a week later he texted me to go for a beer and I couldn’t ‘cos I was in a PPM. Then I was like… Wait a minute! What if we could be in the same PPM?! The rest is history.”
Says Wilf Sweetsland, global CEO of Sweetshop: “It’s a hard act to follow a quote from Trevor in a press release. He’s lovely, supremely talented, ok at writing quotes for press releases, and we are over the moon that he wanted to join the Sweetshop family.”
