Ivan Bird

Director of Photographer turned director Ivan Bird started his working life as a stills photographer. After working as a cinematographer for some of the biggest directors in town including including the likes of Jonathan Glazer, Daniel Kleinman and Frank Budgen, he decided to have a go himself.

He turned out to be rather good at it and although - unsurprisingly - he is best known for his highly visual approach, he's proven equally adept at drawing strong performances.

"Football Is... "
Having lost English Football League rights to their commercial rivals, the BBC double down on top flight action. This BBC Sport promo highlights the myriad ways fans can keep up with the Premier League this season. While ‘Howlin’ for You’ by the Black Keys provides the terrace chant, we see fans of all ages with their eyes (and ears) on the ball.
