All About carolyn

carolyn corben’s work is distinctive and jaw-droppingly creative, highlighted with bright colors, choreographed action, strong visual effects and mood-setting narrative. For the last eight years, carolyn has directed TV commercials in her native UK and beyond for such global brand names as Gordon’s Gin, Honda, Skittles, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Swatch, Head & Shoulders and many more. carolyn has also lent her directing talent and design driven perspective to many music videos for legendary music artists Elton John, George Michael, The Scissor Sisters, Shirley Bassey, and Siouxsie Sioux.

The director first defined her expansive creative palette as part of a design company, The New Renaissance, which she formed with her colleague, Harvey Betram-Brown. The dynamic pair designed window displays, fashion and homeware collections, costumes and film sets for clients such as Harvey Nichols, Moschino, Speedo and Henri Bendels. They invented characters for the national weather station, bringing natural phenomenons to life with actors dressed in beautiful, elaborate costumes representing the sun, wind, rain, and clouds.

As part of the directing duo, carolyn was featured in Campaign Magazine’s list of “Hot Directors,” and Saatchi and Saatchi’s “New Directors” showcase at the Cannes film festival.

Even More About Carolyn

carolyn brings to kaboom a skill we have long sought yet hitherto not found — at last, we have an accomplished mackerel fisherman on our roster. Now, bring this together with her award-winning opera singing, and we think you’ll get a sense of why we’re so excited to have her on board (kaboom, that is, not a mackerel boat). Perfectionism infuses everything carolyn does. She has garnered numerous prizes for her early creative efforts, which include painting, knitting, embroidery, and clothing design. Later, having established herself as the world’s preeminent mackerel-fishing, costume-and-set designer, she began looking covetously at the camera, which soon became the next award-winning outlet for her perfectionism. She has brought her finely tuned eye for detail to music videos and commercials, and her work is in demand around the world, from Glasgow to Moscow to Malaysia. As a practicing Buddhist, one imagines an island of come amidst a raging whirlwind on shoot days. carolyn lives in London with a jolly bloke and enjoys taking her dog, Trouble, for long walks in the country. She doesn’t like bean sprouts, but that’s OK. They don’t really go with mackerel anyway.
