Paul Smith becomes Patron of EM Media

Paul Smith has become the first patron of EM Media, an agency that supports, develops and invests in creative talent from film and digital content sector in the East Midlands.

Based in Paul's home town of Nottingham, EM Media was set up in 2002 with a vision to make the East Midlands the most creative and progressive filmmaking and digital content producing region in the UK. They have had considerable success, making its name through investments in a host of award-winning British films. The agency's portfolio includes Shane Meadows' BAFTA winner This Is England, actress Samantha Morton's directorial debut The Unloved and Anton Corbijn's award-winning Control, the acclaimed biopic of Joy Division's troubled front man Ian Curtis.

Paul is an avid film fan and collaborated with original Factory Records graphic designer Peter Saville to produce the official limited edition t-shirts for the Control film, which were sold in his stores across the world. As the only UK investor in the Nottingham-shot Control, EM Media was fortunate to establish a relationship with Paul Smith and co-hosted a gala screening of the film in Nottingham; signaling the start of an exciting partnership.

Debbie Williams, Chief Executive, EM Media comments, “I am absolutely thrilled that Sir Paul Smith has agreed to be our patron. He shares with EM Media a passion for film, coupled with a strong commitment to Nottingham and the East Midlands. These qualities, together with his focus on talent and his entrepreneurial approach, make him the ideal ambassador for EM Media and our work in championing the region's creative talent. The unmistakable Englishness of Sir Paul's designs is a sensibility echoed across EM Media's diverse investment portfolio; films by new talent telling stories about British lives and experiences in new and innovative ways. We are delighted to formalise this relationship and look forward to future collaborations.”

Paul, delighted with his patronage, stated “I was very flattered to be asked to be Patron for EM Media. I worked with them on a project connected to the highly successful film Control. They are very professional, enthusiastic and great at nurturing new talent, a lot of which comes from the East Midlands, which of course is especially close to my heart as I was born in Nottingham and still have my company headquarters there.”
