Ellie Johnson

Talented young editor Ellie Johnson has already built an impressive portfolio of work, including some big set pieces such as the Lloyds ad with all the horses on the beach, and he epic 'Go Mahoosive' commercial for First Direct.

She has a great feel for a project and offers the same attention to detail regardless of scale and budget.

"The Gift"
First cars rarely meet expectations. Young DAVID, for example, wanted a Batmobile - what he got was, erm, less than heroic. It’s a rite of passage familiar to many (except Batman, of course) and this beautifully judged McDonald’s ad nails it. Shot by directing duo thirtytwo, the ad centres on a seventeen-year-old boy and his new motor—his mum’s old motor, to be precise.
