Ed Morris

Ed Morris has had two lives within advertising. After years as a highly successful creative director with the gongs to match, he decided to jack it all in and become a director. This is very much our industry's equivalent of running away to join the circus.

His work demonstrates an unceasing ability to look for an element beyond the obvious in a bid to add that je ne sais quoi which makes creative work exciting. He's unlikely to ever be the director an agency would turn to when they simply need someone to film the storyboard as his strength lies in discovering hidden depths in an idea. As a result, his work is often imbued with a bristling energy that can be unsettling... in a good way.

Royal Navy
"Michael's Story"
Walt Whitman must be one of adland's choice poets. From luxury saloons to Chinese milk, Whitman's verses pepper various works striving for poetic heft. Now the American bard and Breaking Bad plot device propels this latest ‘Made in the Royal Navy' film.
