Filmmaking for David began during his childhood in rural Hampshire, where he shot improvised homages to the Indiana Jones series. Editing was done in-camera, the 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 MTV, Coca-Cola, Virgin and American Express, and directed some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Richard Branson and Lewis Hamilton. As a lifelong F1 fan, this – and seeing two of his commercials play on Times Square – have been particular highlights.
David's multi-award-winning short ‘A Modest Defeat’ was an Official Selection at two Academy Award qualifying festivals (Montreal Festival du Nouveau Cinéma and CIFF) amassing more than 6 million views on YouTube.
