Kanyessa McMahon Signs to Frank
Frank has added director Kanyessa McMahon to its roster.
Much like her hometown of New York, Kanyessa McMahon is a force to be reckoned with. She creates gorgeous cinematic work with a docu-style approach, at the heart of which is the connection between people on screen and the universal feelings that transcend the screen. She prides herself on her talent direction and allows her talent to feel comfortable and at ease, resulting in open, soulful and real reactions.
Kanyessa studied photography at the Pratt Institute and was an early starter: pitching and winning her first TV show to MTV at the age of 23, and setting up her own company aged 25. Kanyessa's years of experience working with the world's leading brands in sports, lifestyle and youth culture; helping to shape their voice and create authentic content and marketing campaigns that have been highly successful. Clients have included: Adidas, Nike, Walmart, Viacom, Hershey, Universal Music Group, YouTube, Estee Lauder and Henkel amongst others.
Integral to the work for Kanyessa is the celebration of women and showcasing diversity, especially the diversity within women of colour.
