Nick Rutter

Nick Rutter's complex directing style leads to visually rich work which can handle many narrative threads simultaneously.

He concentrated on both music promos and commercials, with his 'Loch Ness' short film for Google Maps gaining him a lot of welcome attention.

He's building his reputation to a purpose... in a 2015 interview he revealed where his ambitions lie: "I would love an opportunity in TV. I’d love to direct ‘Inside Number 9’, ‘Top of the Lake’ or ‘Black Mirror’."

"Emma Forbes"
This graphic-heavy ad for Tanqueray gin focuses on Emma Forbes, head of the start-up company Seenit. Emma talks nebulously about creativity and her approach to storytelling, while pleasant True Detective-esque visuals appear projected on her and her surroundings. We're not sure what any of it has to do with gin, but it's a nicely shot and constructed piece of work.
