Tash is a London-based director and visual artist with a background in fine art, graphic design and photography.
Having trained at Chelsea College of Art and London College of Communication, she crosses the boundaries between art, experimental films, music videos, independent films and branded content. Very much a visualiser across many mediums, she continues developing her relationship with film and music through a focus on strong concepts, storytelling and striking visuals.
Carly Cussen got her start in the industry as a runner soon after leaving school at 16. As soon as she could, she abandoned tea-making and got herself behind the camera… initially forging a reputation as a promo director, and she hasn’t looked back.
Epic locations, dynamic choreography and sharp cinematography all play their part in her work; and her range and style encompass everything from UK grime artists like Lethal Bizzle to slick pop acts such as Little Mix.
Lily Rose Thomas
Lily’s background as a photographer is a strong influence on her directing work – with an emphasis on subtle narrative and story telling, but also a strong aesthetic. Having contributed photos to titles including i-D and Wonderland, as well as shooting album artwork, bands and also making her own zines and exhibiting, Lily has more recently collaborated with bands on music videos, with clients including Domino and Island Records. Most recently Lily has worked with brands such as Adidas & Bershka.
Director Fran Broadhurst of Mathy and Fran is a part of the directing duo based in London. Their projects span commercials, music videos, narrative and documentary. Fascinated by colour, Mathy & Fran produce work with a meticulous eye for detail and a glorious sense of the absurd. Working with brands such as Google, H&M and Magnum, they’ve been featured by the likes of Campaign, Slate and Nowness, picking up multiple Vimeo Staff Picks along the way.
After graduating in Film from the University of Westminster, Sara was soon named one of the Top 25 Directors to Watch by Creativity Magazine. Through her work, she demonstrates a particular affinity with cinematic realism, full of authenticity and beauty. She has a gift for narrative storytelling, with inspired casting and performances across her work.
In 2013 Eve graduated from Plymouth College of Art with her Film Art diploma ready to make music videos. Working with influential underground musicians such as Illaman, Klein and Estrons – as well as filming trailers for her brother’s award winning one-man show ‘Until You Hear That Bell’- whatever the brief, she finds new ways to lift you from the humdrum of every day life.
Professor of Screen Industries and Director of Creative Industries Research Centre at the University of West London.
Dr Emily Caston, Professor of Screen Industries and Director of Creative Industries Research Centre at the University of West London, has produced over 100 award-winning videos for artists such as Madonna and Oasis with directors such as Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze and is currently Co-curator of the AHRC-funded research project Fifty Years of British Music Video.
