Cary Fukunaga

Cary Fukunaga is destined to be forever associated with the magnificent first series of HBO's True Detective. And, of course, his reputation was further enhanced by having nothing whatsoever to do with the disastrous second series.

His TVC work has the same cinematic quality he brought to his acclaimed television series and he delivers a straight-faced gravitas that can sometimes elude British directors.

WORK:
Calvin Klein Eternity
"Jake Gyllenhaal"
This 60" commercial starring actor Jake Gyllenhaal is essentially Calvin Klein's guide to parenting. Shot in black-and-white, the ad sees Gyllenhaal (at peak beard, no less) and partner dote on their young daughter. It's all earnest to a fault, though Gyllenhaal's rendition of the line: "I carry your heart with me; I carry it in my heart" sounds vaguely threatening.
