Andy Margetson

Having built his directing career on his passion for capturing dance, Andy Margetson has demonstrated in recent years that he can apply his skill set to other genres.

His unscripted 2016 film for Purdey's - for instance - had Idris Elba asking members of the public about their secret ambitions and drew excellent performances from superstar and non-actors alike.

When the performers are as talented as the dancers in this captivating commercial for Timberland, the director can achieve a lot by allowing the action to speak for itself and that's exactly what White Label's Andy Margetson has done. By itself, it's a pretty piece of film and we might find ourselves praising this regardless of what it was for, but it's all the better because it cleverly shifts our perception of the advertised product.
