Peter Thwaites

Peter Thwaites began his career as a cinematographer and moved into directing in 1999. It wasn't long before he was selected for the New Directors Showcase at Cannes Lions Festival and highlighted as an emerging talent.

In 2008 Thwaites won the coveted DGA Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Commercials, and is known for his ability to draw out engaging, authentic performances from adults and children alike.

WORK:
Subaru
"I'm Sorry"
One of two US ads focusing on Subaru's safety features, this takes quite a brave approach. We see young drivers in the aftermath of collisions; each is shaken and remorseful. But crucially, they are unhurt - because, the ad suggests, their accidents have been while driving the car in question. You just don't want to see the other guy!
