Tom has won acclaim for his narrative music videos for Temper Trap, Civil Wars, and Jon Hopkins among others, which have garnered MVA and Vimeo awards. Directing documentary work for the BBC, Channel 4 and Tate inspired bold personal films such as Luminarias, a poetic documentary exploring a pagan fire festival in rural Spain, with an original Unkle soundtrack. His evocative, cinematic storytelling has led him to work with brands such as Google, Expedia, Land Rover and Verizon. In 2016, his Road Safety campaign was nominated for Shots and British Arrows awards. Tom is passionate about storytelling, creating worlds and characters through writing and directing dramatic films, including the coming of age short Night of the Foxes that premiered at Rotterdam and London Film Festivals, and more recently The Mission, which was shot in LA and is being finished early this year. He continues to expand his practice, developing feature film and television projects.
