The agency inked Irish writer-director Kieron Walsh, whose film Jump also recently won best picture at the Irish Film New York Festival. He is also represented at Independent Talent in the UK. Gersh signed Antoinette Beumer, the Netherlands helmer (and sister of actress Famke Janssen) who directed the Holly Hunter-starrer Jackie. She is managed by Echo Lake. Gersh also signed Canadian Sean Garrity, who directed My Awkward Sexual Adventure. The agency also signed that film’s writer (and star), Jonas Chernick.
