BAFTA, EMMY and GRAMMY nominated Untold Studios announce their latest signing to its growing roster. 

Gabriella Kingsley has quickly built a reputation for creating engaging, performance driven work across the worlds of music and commercials. She has worked with some of the biggest names in music from Ed Sheeran to Akon and Aitch. Her recent project for Nina Simone saw her create a spellbinding visual aiming to celebrate and empower Black women. 

Kingsley has also just finished up a campaign for Pantene celebrating Black beauty and has an ongoing collaboration with high-end streetwear brand, Benjart. 

Being a self-taught director who has risen up from a grass-roots level, Kingsley is passionate about mentoring the next generation, particularly those from underrepresented groups. She regularly hosts events to that effect and has sat on various panels. Kingsley has also mentored for major platforms and brands such as BBC’s ‘RapGame’ and SBTV’s Jamal Edwards x Adobe mentoring program ‘Perspective is everything’.

Untold Studios Co-Founder Rochelle Palmer explains, “Gabriella is an important voice and inspiring role model for a new generation of filmmakers. First and foremost she’s an outstanding director, breathtaking energy, performance-driven-storytelling and her work often celebrates marginalised voices.

Having worked with and got to know Gabriella over the last year we’re very excited that she is officially joining our roster. Gabriella is an inspiring person, we share the same values and are excited about the great work we will do together.”
