Gus Filgate

Director and all-round foodie Gus Filgate has made a name for himself as the thinking man's food director. He's someone who's keenly interested in food's cultural power, and thanks to his blend of mouthwatering photography and canny storytelling, his work encompasses TVCs and short films as well as stills.

Indeed, his ability to tell stories through food has made him a choice pick for brands such as McDonald's, Kelloggs, and the Carers Trust.

Co-op Supermarkets
"Feel the Heat"
Anyone who's ordered the hottest curry on the menu and lived to regret it will appreciate this well-observed ad from the Co-op. Like a game of chicken (erm, curry), a bloke and his prospective son-in-law square off in an eating contest worthy of Rajasthan while their other halves look on. Engaging and deftly shot, it's another strong addition to a relatable campaign.
