Life's too Short's Warwick Davis' Willow Management Website

We recently put the finishing touches on a new website for Willow Management, the real life talent agency run by Warwick Davis, star of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's new BCC's Comedy, Life's To Short.

Willow Management - The biggest agency for short actors in the world - approached both us and DJA Online late last year to redevelop their talent agency's website. The main objective of the site was for it to be easy for casting directors to view the pictures and videos of all the talent that Willow has to offer, and for the agency to easily update the profile of all the actors on their books.

Another part of the brief was help develop the brand - both Peter and Warwick believe passionately in using real actors for 'short' roles in TV & movies, as no matter how good the technology is, it still can't replicate a real actor. 

We helped with the tone of voice and art directed the photoshoot, while incorporating existing elements of their brand into their design.

Warwick's film roles include most of the Harry Potter movies, Willow, Return of the Jedi, Leprechaun, along with TV Roles including a cameo on Extra's - where Ricky Gervais appears to kick Warwick in the face.

In the new show, Warwick plays a version of himself, an actor, who runs an agency for short actors, but who keeps all the best jobs for himself, is divorced, owes the tax man thousands and is struggling to stay afloat, but agrees to let a film crew film him for a documentary...

It will be broadcast Thursday 10 November on BBC2.
