KOJO Melbourne appoints new content director

Creative agency KOJO Melbourne has added director Nicholas Carlton to its roster of exclusive content directors.

The announcement:

Award winning Director Nicholas Carlton has joined the roster of exclusive content directors at national integrated storytelling company KOJO.

KOJO Executive Producer Jessica Norton is delighted by the appointment, “Nicholas is one of those rare finds where ‘he’s one with the lot’. He’s a perfect fit for KOJO as he has an incredible understanding of the diversity of content. Nicholas created 24 webisodes in 2009 that catapulted him to the forefront of digital film making. This in itself demonstrates he’s a trailblazer in understanding new opportunities and running with them. Not only is he a talented director, but he also edits – giving him complete control over the final product.”

His short documentary about a WWII airforce navigator, The Navigator, was distributed by Australia’s national broadcaster, the ABC. Nicholas has also showcased his talents in
commercial work for brands including Hyundai, Holden, Dulux, Beyond Blue and Telstra.

Nicholas has produced work viewed by millions of people and has spoken to industry bodies SPAA and AFTRS about cutting-edge filmmaking and digital distribution. He has also been recognised at worldwide festivals such as the New York Television Festival and the Webby Awards.

On his appointment, Nicholas said “Recent developments in technology have proven that it can take out-of-the-box thinking to engage audiences. My philosophy has always been to fuse traditional storytelling principles with innovative approaches. With their integrated, multidisciplinary approach, it was exciting to come across a company that shared this ethos. I’m really excited to take the next step in my career as a director with Kojo.”

KOJO said it was looking forward to the many opportunities Nicholas will bring to the team as it continues to fulfil its promise to tell stories like no other.
