It all began with Jurassic Park. David walked out of the cinema knowing he had to be a director. Filmmaking started on the family DV camera where David shot improvised homages to the Indiana Jones series. Editing was done in-camera, dialogue was decided seconds before a take and the third male lead was a cardboard cut-out of Emile Heskey.

Since then David has gone on to create global campaigns for the likes of Coca-Cola, Virgin, MTV and American Express and directed some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment including Lewis Hamilton, Richard Branson, Sarah Jessica Parker and Geri Halliwell. David’s award-winning short A Modest Defeat was Official Selection at the Academy Award qualifying Festival du Nouveau Cinema and has had more than four million views during its first few months online.
