David Wilson is a London based director. More than a decade ago, he was one of the people re-vamping and rescuing from oblivion the music video format, back in the days when promos were struggling to once again become relevant story-telling environments. He made artistic cutting-edge videos look sexy, mesmerizing and appealing to large crowds. Through a series of hilarious making-ofs he taught regular people what terms like “stop-motion” “stratacut” and “praxinoscope” mean for animation.
He’s most well know for his music video work, but his output spans various mediums including commercials and even VR installations. He takes great enjoyment from crossing disciplines between animation and live action, often combining the two to create something totally unique. David has created work for artists such as Arctic Monkeys, David Guetta, Lady Gaga, Metronomy, Royal Blood, We Have Band, The Maccabees, Japanese Popstars and Tame Impala, receiving copious accolades including being crowned Best Director at the UK Music Video Awards and a Grammy nomination in 2015 for his video for Arcade Fire, ‘We Exist’. He was one of the flagship directors of Colonel Blimp production company, a Blink segment specially dedicated to highly creative music video projects.
