[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

Founders of The TrailerFarm and Atomhawk are today announcing the launch of new independent games agency, Big Thursday Creative.

Led by Dan and Tony Porter, founders of The TrailerFarm, and Atomhawk founder, Ron Ashtiani, Big Thursday Creative will be collaborating with studios across the full breadth of the international games industry, from indie teams to AAA publishers, to deliver high quality creative solutions for game trailers, cinematics, key art and pre-viz.

The agency’s goal is to put creativity first by working with top-tier talent in a supportive culture where artists can deliver their best work and clients can experience an excellent level of service.

Ron Ashtiani, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, says:

“Our vision is to build a creative powerhouse, collaborating with developers and publishers to deliver exceptional campaigns that will launch games into the market and support the long-tail life cycle beyond initial release. As an independent agency, we look forward to being agile, bringing experienced creative leadership to our projects and maximising clients’ investment in their game.” 

Dan, Ron and Tony have all enjoyed extensive careers in the games industry and bring together a wealth of experience in building creative businesses and delivering award-winning creative content.

Dan Porter, Executive Director and Co-Founder, says:

“It's exciting to return to the games agency space, especially with the experienced team we have lined up. The opportunity to join with Ron, who built Atomhawk into a world-class studio, was irresistible. He shares our values and commitment to producing industry-leading creative.”

Tony Porter, Executive Director and Co-Founder, says:

“We know how much love goes into making games because we've made them ourselves. It's our desire to do game maker's efforts justice by delivering creative content that cuts through the noise and grows the game’s audience.”

Big Thursday looks forward to engaging with new clients and partners and are looking for Cinematic, Game Capture, Motion Graphics and Technical Artists, and Trailer Editors to join their team.
