UPDATE: First Direct

UPDATE(3) here's a secure password controlled link to the First Direct ads.

UPDATE (2) Apparently these commercials will be shown shortly on the First Direct website as a possible trial for airing on TV.

Please, don't shoot the messenger.

UPDATE: well, as you can see, these commercials have not yet appeared. There have been some serious issues with the head client, HSBC, and there is no air date at all at the moment, sadly.

The most disappointing thing is that they are probably the best commercials I have directed in the last 5 years. Opps.

Even if they do not make it on air, I hope to be able to put them on my reel very soon.


Have been shooting a new campaign for First Direct for JWT that drops this Friday on TV.
I am really excited about these commercials. They are starring the actor Paul Kaye and the stand up comedian Paul Foot.

We have edited and shot the first one and shoot the second next week. I am delighted how they've turned out.

Hope you like them too.
