CHRIS COTTAM JOINS DIRECTORIAL ROSTER
We are thrilled to announce the addition of Chris Cottam to the directorial roster!
Chris’ extensive body of work across film, TV, commercials, music videos and documentaries exemplifies his multi-faceted skills as a director. With an emphasis on humor driven narrative, he frequently collaborates with celebrity talent, including Tom Hardy, Owen Wilson, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, to name a few.
Cottam’s latest series was just released on Quibi Nikki Fresh, starring Nicole Richie. The comedic, music-based series is one of the first to air on the newly launched streaming service.
Chris recently directed a comedic travel series for BBC, The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan. Romesh is a British stand-up comic and actor, and the series has taken them on epic adventures, to some of the most remote places in the world – such as camping in the Arctic & Mongolia.
Currently filming is Perfectly Legal, another travel documentary series starring former The Great British Baking Show host Sue Perkins, which is set to premiere on Netflix later this year. Last week Chris filmed a BBC promo for Big Night In, benefiting Children in Need, which featured UK celebrities, all shot remotely over Zoom. It’s an excellent exercise to show how adaptable and creative the Advertising business is. Chris has lived in numerous countries – UK, US, Germany, India and Italy – and is constantly world traveling for projects – he truly has a global perspective and approach to filmmaking. His body of work covers so many different areas of entertainment & advertising and always manages to challenge, inspire and thoroughly amuse. We are very excited to be on this latest journey with him.
Chris has shot commercial campaigns for Samsung, O2 T-Mobile, Baileys, Papyrus, Rimmel, Umbro, BBC and many others. Additionally, he has directed music videos for various award-winning artists: Ellie Goulding, Robyn, Nelly Furtado, Logic, and Timberland. He also happens to be a music composer and has been known to create the music for some of his work!
