Mondays right... if only you could work somewhere else. Cue a humorous whistle stop tour of what a brand new job that you love could feel like.
Paying the bill in restaurants is always a faff. Trying to get someone's attention, figuring out how to split it. Magic pay makes it seamless and easy, you scan a QR code and in three clicks it's done. Loved making a fun, humorous quick fire film with whip pans, crash zooms and a cameo from myself.

Stonebridge Boxing Club
Probably the hardest film I've ever made and a whirlwind induction into the world of boxing. I was one of ten directors selected out of 300 to make a film for a charity in need. Stonebridge boxing club changes a lot of lives in an area that has it's fair share of gang violence. In my first meeting with Ali, who set up the club, he wanted a no holds barred film which started with a stabbing and ended up highlighting how boxing changes lives. We removed the stabbing, but created something that we're all proud of and which screened at the ICA. I hope that boxing continues to change lives for the better.
This started out life as a spec ad with an open ended offer to the charity to collaborate. My Dad, Bob has lived with Parkinson's disease for over 20 years and I have always wanted to make something that can raise awareness and inspire. With Parkinson's all of your bodies movement becomes a struggle and your muscles tense up endlessly. We decided that we'd pose a question to a number of people living with the disease and asked them what they'd do if they were cured for just one day. People living with disability are my inspiration and the everyday super heros that this world deserves.
Harry Potter Idents
Mattel / Warner Bros
An email out of the blue from people at the Dentsu Aegis Network, one of the world's largest multinational media agencies. They wanted to re-create scenes from the Harry Potter movies with kids playing with their swish new range of Harry Potter Dolls. I'm talking Yule Ball, Quidditch and every day Hogwarts glad rags. What an epic day of filming with crash zooms and macro lenses and a fire alarm that went off for over an hour. The end result: 5x Idents that aired on Sky Nickelodeon and Pop.
Ecosurity & Hubbub Foundation UK
UK battery recycling is way below it's target, so a glorious campaign was created called 'Bring Back Heavy Metal!' From the start we wanted something striking, fun and above all else EPIC. The idea was developed with environmental charity Hubbub and Ecosurity. The campaign garnered the support of Asda, B&Q, Marks & Spencer, Currys and Morrisons. We created 3x 1 minute epic films where everyday things turn very heavy metal.
Imagine your at work, it's a rainy day but just behind the clouds is the glorious sun and it's on the brink of popping out. What would you do when you got home? Obviously hit up the inflatable hot tub in your garden, that's what.
And imagine if you could turn it on from your desk via an app. Well the team at the clever company have created a clever hot tub that can do just that and we created a witty commercial which show's it off in all it's glory.
