British director who rose to fame through a series of music videos and commercials, including the superb Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai and the Surfer commercial for Guinness. He has just finished work on a feature film, entitled Sexy Beast, starring Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley as a pair of gangsters returning from the Costa Del Crime for one last job (UK release date: 12/1/01).

Recent work:

1995: Massive Attack - Karmacoma
1996: Radiohead - Street Spirit (Fade Out)
1997: Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity
1998: Blur - The Universal, Radiohead - Karma Police, UNKLE - Rabbit In Your Headlights
1999: Guinness - Swimblack, Guinness - Surfer
2000: FilmFour - Sexy Beast

Virtual Insanity won 4 MTV Awards in 1997, including best video, and The Times described Surfer as 'The most beautiful and powerful piece of film on our screens is not one of Hollywood's technical epics. It's a 60-second commercial for Guinness.' Reviews of his first full-length movie, however, have been mixed.

Note: Apparently he has also done work for Nick Cave but I've been unable to find any information on what and when this was.
