Alex Boutell

The foundations for Alex Boutell's career in film were laid when he scared the pants off himself by watching The Shining (by accident) at the tender age of eleven.

Since then, he's gone on be a prolific director, working for Channel 4's powerhouse 4Creative and signing to Tantrum in 2017.

His style is characterised by a cinematic sensibility and flair for the dramatic - his work for Channel 4's Paralympics coverage (Supervillains) is an excellent example.

Highly accomplished technically, he also combines creative camera moves with clever post work to produce unique effects: take a look at his excellent, slick 'product recall' trailer for the TV series 'Humans' to see it in action.

WORK:
Channel 4
"Women's Euro 2017"
Women’s football is on the front foot now. Together with UEFA’s recent showstopper, this Women’s Euro 2017 ad should ensure the women’s game resonates beyond this summer’s Dutch showpiece. Channel 4 tease their coverage with some old-fashioned keepy-uppy.
