Richard Laxton

Comedies, dramas, TVCs... Richard Laxton excels at directing all three. From his hugely successful sitcom 'Him & Her' (which won him a BAFTA) to BAFTA-nominated drama 'Burton and Taylor' plus 'Mum' (BAFTA-winning sitcom with Lesley Manville), everything he touches turns to, er, BAFTAs.

His commercials for Lotto featuring real people are also beautifully done; putting each person at ease and creating a heartwarming atmosphere.

"Dads"
Fishing boats, virtual reality golf, and, er, gastric band surgery are just some of the Father's Day ideas proffered in this Lotto ad. This campaign's vox pop approach supports the notion that everyone has a wishlist when it comes to the jackpot. With one guaranteed millionaire in every draw, one dad could be in for a memorable June 18th.
