Michael J Ferns signs for 76 Ltd.

by Andrew MacGregor

 
 

76 have high hopes for their latest signing, young Scottish director Michael J Ferns… and a quick glance at his CV suggests their confidence is justified.

Ferns won his first Scottish BAFTA at the age of sixteen, and since then he's added commercials, TV drama, and short films to his bow. Despite his tender years, the twenty-seven year old already has a firm handle on his craft.


As for 76, Executive Producers Mark Murrell and Phil Barnes believe their expertise can help Ferns develop his style even further. Given his track record so far, it's little wonder Glasgow-born Ferns has attracted such interest from south of the border.

His most recent ad saw Ferns return to Scotland for a musical number with a difference. This 40" Scotch Beef commercial demonstrates his knack for timing and astute casting, as the protagonist conducts a symphony of butchers, tractors, and chopping boards.


This tight blend of meats and beats indicates that no script is beyond Ferns's grasp. As the Scot readies himself for another hectic year's filming, 76 are keen to match his talents with the right scripts... and ensure his accomplished showreel keeps growing.
