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.

"Streets of Solidarity"
This altruistic Land Rover commercial draws attention to the marque's partnership with the Italian Red Cross. Set amidst Milan's homeless community, the ad follows volunteers as they provide comfort and sustenance throughout the night. As temperatures drop, the charity's midnight drives become ever more essential.
