Oliver made waves recently in the advertising world with his underwater spot for RNLI. From humble beginnings as a runner he’s worked his way to the top, now directing powerful films and advertising spots that combine a craft of striking visceral imagery coupled with deep emotional subtexts.
His short This is Vanity was critically lauded and has won multiple international film festivals awards.
It was shortlisted for a BAFTA and currently has 13 million views on Youtube as well as being screened on Channel 4 and prized as a Vimeo Staff pick. Olly’s work across both narrative and documentary consistently packs a strong emotional punch.
In the commercial world Oliver has shot for charities including RNLI and Samaritans, companies including KFC, Wimbledon, Mizuna, and Onside and major international advertising agencies BBH, Engine, Saatchi and Saatchi, McCann and Don’t Panic amongst others.
