Found It! Debenhams 2016 Christmas TV Campaign


I am double thrilled to have directed a Christmas TV campaign for Debenhams.  Building on the back of their ‘Found It’ campaign of the last two years, JWT London commissioned me to direct the third series of this successful concept.

Over three days we lit and shot a host of star products in a house in north west London and the scripts were brought to life by a cast of snazzy household names – Billie Piper, Bruno Tonioli, Mel Giedroyc and Ewan Macgregor – as the voice of each gift, exhorting the viewer to find it for the right person, with Jennifer Saunders doing her very best to give us her most fabulous impression of Joanna Lumley over the top of a leopard print ladies’ handbag.

Thanks to my DoP Ed Wild, editor Nathan Perry Green at Cut and Run, all the elves at MPC for their grading skills and Small Press Music for the beautifully scored string and woodwind track that they created.
