BLOK

​Two of the three following statements about Blok are true…

1. BLOK’s non-negotiable shoot rider must contain two lukewarm glasses of water, 4 rubber bands, a pigmy owl and a giant Toblerone.

2. BLOK took their name from the powerhouse Jennifer Lopez classic “Jenny from the Block” and play it on continuous loop at their two-man annual Christmas party.

3. BLOK first met on a job in the Arctic Circle where they bonded over the mildly traumatic experience of witnessing the castration of a reindeer by a young Sami tribe member, using only her teeth. *

Before there was BLOK, there was Paul and Rich, who spent many-a-year making comedy series across the world for the BBC, Channel 4, Sky and Netflix. Then, 3 years ago, BLOK was born. Based in London and split as Director + DOP, BLOK makes comedy-driven commercials, often combining multiple worlds, extraordinary characters, seamless transitions, set-builds, and VFX. Their commercials may be a far cry from their television work, but they still can’t quite get that poor reindeer out of their heads. 

*All three statements are true.

Rich came 4th in the hotly contested semi-finals of the regional “Beard of the Year, Tottenham 2020.

Paul is the tall BLOK.
