Chris Sweeney

Chris Sweeney blagged his way into a start at MTV in 2005, telling them he knew exactly what he was doing (he didn't), only to receive the response 'it doesn't matter, nobody's watching'. Chris decided to do something about that.

Since then he's become known for his subversive pop promos, and his eye-catching, layered style has rewarded him with a bunch of awards and the trust of some of the biggest pop artists of the last decade. His 'Hard Out Here' collaboration with Lily Allen has notched up 38 million hits alone.

Chris has also turned his attention to commercials, with warm, humorous spots for high-street and high-end brands alike.

Marks & Spencer
"Back to School"
The 'back to school' market must be considered very precious by each of the retailers who supply it as they seem to raise their game year after year. Marks & Spencer's effort is particularly exuberant and as we mentioned last week, offered Rainey Kelly and director Chris Sweeney the opportunity to connect it to their sumptuous food advertising.
