Joe Connor

If you like to imagine the projectionist at your local cinema is a romantic cinephile dreaming that his name will one day appear on the screen in front of him, then you'll be thrilled to meet Joe Connor.

This is because the formative experience which persuaded him to pursue his current vocation was watching Coen Brothers films four times a day and deciding he'd like to do what they do.

It was an ambitious target but he's taken major strides in the right direction and picked up a lot of plaudits along the way, including nominations at a variety of awards and festivals.

Plus because he's also worked as a theatre director and a mime artist, we'd imagine he's extremely good at giving very quiet notes to his actors.

"Human Made"
This cultured Volvo commercial is touchy-feely in the best possible way. The carmaker claims it's the human touch that inspires them. Instead of a portentous VO describing myriad design features, the ad favours a more tactile approach. Subtle gestures make a big impression - for Volvo, this is the ideal starting point when designing their interiors.
