Jake Mavity

After securing a first class honours degree at film school, Jake Mavity won a job as an editor, and was able to develop his narrative skills while working all over the world.

As a director, he makes atmospheric and moving films with quirky, stylistic flourishes, and is adept at interweaving emotional and visual narratives... skills have seen him short-listed at Cannes for his work on McDonald's. He often uses non-actors, using 'real' people to deliver performances which are tonally more authentic than those drawn from actors. In addition to his live action films, Jake loves working with stop-frame animation.

Scott Quinn
This arresting promo for Scott Quinn's 'Run' depicts a relationship going through a rocky patch - if it survives at all. Directed by Jake Mavity, the film was shot on five separate iPhones before being spliced together, giving each segment its own unique visual field. The result is a fractured picture which makes the most of the song's "broken glass" lyrics - a film in pieces to match the relationship it shows.
