It all began with Jurassic Park. David walked out of the cinema saying he had to be a director.
Filmmaking started on the family DV camera, where he 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. It’s some of his best received work.
Since then he’s 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 Cyndi Lauper.
David's award-winning short ‘A Modest Defeat’ was Official Selection at the Academy Award qualifying Festival du Nouveau Cinéma and has had more than 3 million views during its first few months online.
