Intrinsic Agency Expands to Central Europe, Adds ‘Spectre’ and ‘Life of Pi’ Artisan

Below-the-line shop now has offices in West Hollywood, London and Warsaw

Production agency Intrinsic has set up shop in Central Europe via a partnership with Warsaw-based agency High Spot.

The move continues the overseas expansion of the West Hollywood below-the-line agency, which in August announced a merger with London-based Dinedor Management and the addition of U.K.-based partners Rob Little and Jarek Zapora.

A new kid on the below-the-line block, Intrinsic was launched in February by partners Jonathan Silverman and Dana Salston.

Intrinsic’s latest members are Donata Rojewska, founding partner of High Spot, along with partners Hanna Kisielinska and Agnieszka Hermanowska. High Spot is known for repping directors, writers and actors in addition to cinematographers and other below-the-line artists.

Intrinsic’s collaboration with High Spot will focus on key crew department, with the rest of High Spot remaining independent. High Spot’s crew roster will now be known as Intrinsic Warsaw.

Rojewska, Kisielinska and Hermanowska will be responsible for running Intrinsic Warsaw. Rojewska and Kisielinska will share responsibility for features and television, while Hermanowska will helm the commercial department.

High Spot reps over 70 clients, many which come to the agency to be associated with their directors. Among them: Oscar nominated director Bartosz Konpka (“Rabbit a la Berlin”), Mitja Okorn (Polish B.O. hit “Letters to Santa”) and Lukasz Palkowski (“Gods”).

Artisans repped by High Spot include cinematographers Witold Sobocinski (“Frantic”; recipient of Camerimage Lifetime Achievement Award and ASC International Award), Lucas Bielan (camera operator on “Spectre,” pictured behind the camera, above, and “Life of Pi”) and Piotr Sliskowski; and composer Bartosz Chajdecki.

“We were searching for the next piece of the puzzle in this part of Europe and High Spot’s stellar reputation made it an obvious choice,” said Silverman.

Little added,”We are very proud to have these three agents with such an outstanding film/commercial industry background join our team.”
