The Sweet Shop has added award-winning director Mario Zozin to its roster for global representation and management (ex his home market of Germany).
While in television and then recently in film school, Zozin, who grew up in the small town of Remagen, Germany and spent several years acquiring knowledge and hands-on production experience in all facets of filmmaking in the nearby city of Cologne, developed a powerful ability to capture intensity of emotion via cinematic narratives. And among his impressive achievements to date have been a silver at Cannes 2008 for his Adidas – Pure Performance spot, and the Cannes Young Director Award in 2009 for his short Oleg – Life of a Weightlifter. He picked up further two Gold Lions in 2010 for his Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra commercial.
Paul Prince, chief executive/founding partner is a big fan of Mario, and calls him “a director who can drive an idea with powerful emotion and visual elegance”.
“Mario is a delightful young director, who is old beyond his years in maturity while being fresh and totally modern both in style and his working practice,” says Stephen Dickstein, global president/managing partner. “We have barely begun to send out his work and have already gotten a fantastic reaction from top creatives.”
