JJ and Glenn decided to join forces in a new production company, Fox Devil Films, founded by both partners in 2014 in Berlin.
As a producer in Germany, with comprehensive knowledge of German agencies and clients – Glenn Bernstein
As a director in the UK, a highly respected creative, who knows his way around UK production – JJ Keith
Combining forces they will facilitate the co-production between these two creative hubs.
Fox Devil’s first exclusive partner is Rattling Stick which has been voted Top British Commercial Production Company 3 out of the last 5 years by Campaign.
Glenn started his career at Roland Emmerich's feature film production company, Centropolis. He worked on Ghost Chase and Moon 44 before he launched his own production company, Accent Films. He went on to win his first Lion award at the international advertising film festival in Cannes with his first spot produced. After various destinations Glenn landed in Hamburg, where he worked as Executive Producer and Managing Director of Europe's biggest commercial production company, Markenfilm. In 2000 he co-founded Film Deluxe GmbH in Berlin working with international and national film directors for a huge range of brands and clients
around the world. Film Deluxe was in the top 5 of the most creative film production companies in Germany. Glenn is passionate about film.
JJ graduated from Edinburgh University with an MA in Film Studies. He made three short films that all received great acclaim. Notably, his second short Holiday Romance was nominated for an Oscar and won the Hollywood Film Festival. After a short stint in Television Drama he moved to advertising, since when he has directed ads for clients as diverse as Gossard Wonderbra to BT. He has picked up a range of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards at Cannes, Creative Circle, BTAA, One Show and many other festivals. JJ has been working with Glenn at Film Deluxe for nearly ten years and together they have produced work for many big German clients such as Yello, Edeka and Sparkasse.
JJ is English with German roots, Glenn is German with American roots. Their ethos is to have a company that excels creatively using both German and British resources. So they started playing with the translation from German phrases into English. I Spider Films? No. Old Rabbit Productions? Nope. Sleep on a Train Films? Definitely not. Then JJ remembered breaking his German grandmothers favorite porcelain ornament when he was a naughty little boy. Her response? “You’re making me fox devil wild!” Thanks Oma!
We look forward to working with you,
