Recess Films has launched in Los Angeles and New York, with a diverse roster of established and emerging directors. The company will produce work across genres, including commercials, films, series, and branded content.
Industry veteran John Duffin will serve as Recess’ Managing Director. As an executive at Epoch Films for 17 years, Duffin’s philosophy of nurturing developing talent alongside established filmmakers helped launch the careers of many of the industry’s most successful directors.
Duffin’s partners in Recess are Jonathan Notaro and Devin Brook of Brand New School. Recess will operate independently from BNS, with its own roster of directors, including Ahmed Klink, Alastair McKevitt, Alexandra Gavillet, Fernando Cardenas, Marcus Ubungen, and Rory Kelleher.
Recess is represented on the West Coast by Melissa Ross.
