The Glue Society has increased its numbers to nine writers/directors working in both Sydney and New York.

The latest member to join the Society is James Dive, a 26 year old Australian creative who at the end of 2003 left Publicis Mojo Sydney to work in London. After a hard but rewarding two years at Grey London (under Dave Alberts), he produced campaigns for Twix, Mars Delight and a notorious campaign for Mothers Against Guns.

The Glue Society will also be taking on a pair of AWARDSchool Students who worked during the recent Think Tank experiment in Sydney, to be announced this Thursday.

Since the end of the nineties, the company has written and directed its entire creative output - as well as contributed to the making of various other agency's scripts. (Mercedes Carma and Canon Pixma both receiving Silver Awards at AWARD this year.)

Current projects being worked on come from both agencies and clients, not just locally but as far afield as Cologne and Paris.

Current members (and their recent work) includes:

Matt Devine and Luke Crethar (Silver AWARD for Fairfax 365, Virgin Mobile Jason Donovan campaign); Paul Bruce (General Pants and Classic FM and upcoming ABC Corporate cinema writing/direction); Pete Baker and James Harvey ( Elle Macpherson Intimates 'Stories' and concept behind Yahoo! Think Tank); Chris Riggert (upcoming Canterbury clothing campaign and JWT Worldwide corporate book); And of course, founders Jonathan Kneebone and Gary Freedman (working on BT, Canal+ for BETC Euro, Paris plus writing and directing an upcoming 60 minute mini-feature through, New York).

I don't begrudge them their success. But it does sound like something of a boy's club. Where are the women in this Society?

I don't believe any of their creatives are black either, does that mean they're racist too?

I'd cut off my johnson and get a dangerous amount of sun if it'd get me a job at the Glue Society.

Well that's the very definition of bad form. I've worked for some people over the years that I haven't liked (is that your issue?) but I wouldn't stoop to anonymous name calling on a blog.
