NEW YORK CITY — Independent production studio Bindery (http://binderynyc.com) has signed Australian director Selina Miles for US representation. She has experience working in over 20 countries and is a multi-faceted filmmaker who began her career as an editor of online content before moving into directing commercials. Her most recent work is the feature documentary about iconic New York City photographer Martha Cooper.
"We're thrilled to have Selina officially join the Bindery family,” says Greg Beauchamp, founder and managing director at Bindery. “From feature films to commercial work, she's the definition of a modern filmmaker. Balancing technical precision with artful nuance, Selina has a diverse range and a hugely collaborative spirit. And she's one of the best humans around.”
Prior to Bindery, Miles worked with brands that include Pepsi, Red Bull, JD Sports and Ubisoft. She has created music videos for The Hilltop Hoods, Northlane, and most recently for UK pop star Anne Marie. Her work on Carefree’s “Meet the Matriarchs” campaign in 2018 achieved a Glass Spike Award for Change.
"2019 is set to be my most exciting year yet coming off completion of my first feature documentary Martha and a partnership with Bindery,” says Miles. “We first worked together as Bindery provided vibrant and agile local production support on Martha, which proved invaluable to the success of the film. I’m honored to be joining their impressive roster and look forward to creating innovative films together.”
Miles has received praise for her music video Rattling the Keys to the Kingdom, which was nominated for Music Video of the Year in Triple J’s J Awards. In 2013, she self-produced a range of hyper-lapse videos featuring artist Sofles. The second in this series, entitled Limitless, was released on Youtube in October 2013 and quickly gained over 12 million views.
