@radical.media Cuts Ties With Morris

NEW YORK @radical.media has ended its six-year relationship with Errol Morris, the company said today. Morris will join Moxie Pictures, a company representative confirmed.

Morris has directed ads in the long-running “Miller High Life Man” campaign, the Apple “Switchers” series, and recent work for Sharp Aquos and Citibank, among many other clients.

He won an Oscar for his 2003 film Fog of War, his documentary on former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara.

Jon Kamen, @radical.media chairman and CEO, said Morris was completing projects and would leave at year’s end.

“We really share different values,” Kamen said, declining to be more specific. “We accomplished everything we could for Errol in his tenure with the company. … We reached a point in which Errol was unhappy and wanted something more.”

A representative at Morris’ production company, Globe Department Store in Boston, said Morris was on a shoot and unavailable for comment.
