BRUT joins 1stAveMachine

Animation collective signs to mixed-media prodco.

Mixed-media production company 1stAveMachine have signed animation collective BRUT for director representation.

The collective, co-founded by 1stAveMachine-rostered director Martin Allais and EP Maud Beckers, covers a full spectrum of animation styles such as sculptural CG, 2D and 3D animation, graphics, stop motion and illustration.

Allais has created award-winning work for Oreo and Samsung and worked with agencies all over the world while Beckers produced work with Argentinian animators Punga before moving to Amsterdam to launch Not To Scale.

“I am thrilled to represent these talented young artists under the leadership of Martin Allais, a firm favourite among our roster of directors," says 1stAveMachine MD and EP, Isabella Parish. "He will support the team with a solid understanding of commercial production and story telling that will bring out the best in their creativity”.

“1stAveMachine is known for its excellence in bringing creative solutions to production challenges," added Beckers. "These often involve collaborations between directors to create these solutions as often 1+1=3. BRUT has this same philosophy, as we function as a collective of directors. We are excited about this new chapter for the collective”.
