Si & Ad

Si & Ad have worked as a directing duo for over a decade, meeting as in-house designers at Virgin Records. They have enjoyed a prolific career in music videos, and from there forayed into commercials developing their penchant for intricate films which never let the technique get in the way of being touching, charming and filmic.

Since starting their commercials career, the pair have shot work for Honda, MoreThan, Miller and JC Penney, but it was with the beautiful love story of Match.com that took them to another level. The film picked up Golds at almost all awards shows around the world, including Cannes, AICP, the British Arrows and the One Show.

WORK:
Army Recruitment
"Buckaroo"
Another instalment of the Army's latest inclusive campaign, this time focused on camaraderie. We watch a group of lads bond by messing around with their sleeping comrade, piling things on top of him until he wakes up to take the whole thing with good-natured humour. It's all rather wholesome... they don't even draw a knob on his face.
