16 Sep Awesome Talent: Guy Hawkins, Director
Guy Hawkins is an award winning filmmaker with over a decade of experience working across brand content, music videos, drama and features. Starting out his career as an editor, he now uses his deep knowledge of post to great effect as a director, having crafted a highly cinematic and dramatic style.
Bringing an incredible amount of originality to all the projects he touches – honing that initial idea and then following it though every stage – he makes it his mission to create a unique on-screen experience for his audience every time. From automotive to hotel groups to music artists, Guy is as at ease working a large crew on location as he is huddled in an intimate studio setting with a small team.
