Kode Red: the creative studio

Huse Monfaradi

Huse is a London-based music video director who began his career directing content for MTV in the early 2000s.

In 2004 he broke into music videos with the iconic video for Eric Prydz “Call On Me”, before going on to direct videos for artists including Arctic Monkeys - “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor” and “Brianstorm”, the latter of which was entered in 2018 into the BFI’s Film Archive as one of the most significant British music videos of all time.

Other high profile work has been music videos for Paolo Nutini’s “Iron Sky” and Louis Tomlinson’s “Two Of Us” as well as working with Michael Kiwanuka on the video for “Love & Hate” and more recently a live film to promote his album “Kiwanuka” which was nominated for Best Live Music Video at the 2020 UKMVAs. Live work over the years has included concert films for artists ranging from Paul McCartney to Sleaford Mods.

Huse’s branded content work over the years has always drawn from his music video background and he has shot campaigns for artists as diverse as One Direction, David Bowie and Tinie Tempah and clients including Sony, YouTube, Spotify, PlayStation and Mastercard.
