Founder - OB Management
Otis Bell founded OB Management back in 2004 and it quickly became recognised as a trusted resource for both emerging and established music video directors. Since then the agency has dominated the music video industry, representing some of the world’s most creative production companies and directors with a prolific output of award winning work. Harnessing its reputation for introducing exciting new talent, OB expanded its offering into representing directors for commercials and content in 2013, sharing its roster with advertising agencies and brands. The company is now a fully inclusive director management agency successfully developing, guiding and nurturing talent from their first music video commissions to worldwide commercial recognition. The London office now has six dedicated agents supported by two in-house producers, while their US division REPROBATES launched in January 2017 with an agent based in NY. In 2012, OB also co-founded PROBATION with Matt Davey, an agency representing award-winning creative talent in photography, illustration, art and design. Again, the agency was born out of cutting edge artists working in music but quickly encompassed the world of advertising and brands with offices in both London and Los Angeles.
