Chiat CDs Overall, McQuoid Sign with Go Film

Overall and McQuoid shot this spot for Chiat client Samsonite.
TBWA/Chiat/Day/New York creative directors Richard Overall and Simon McQuoid are leaving the agency to pursue a career as a directing duo, the pair confirmed today. The Australian duo -- who have worked as a creative team for ten years, most recently on the Samsonite and Nextel accounts at Chiat -- will leave the agency in two weeks and begin shooting jobs through Go Film.

The team has shot through the production company in the past for clients like UNICEF and Samsonite. They are not, however, going to a come up with a clever name for their partnership. "No, we're not going to do it," says copywriter Overall, who admits it would be easy to come up with a snappy moniker for some other directing team. "But when it's yourself, you get all caught up," he says.
