After completing a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art in London, Stuart Parr began his career as a designer in the studios of Jon Bannenberg and Philippe Starck.
It’s his fascination with inanimate objects and composition that led Stuart to filmmaking. Stuart makes small things beautiful, lending his attention to craft and detail through myriad photographic techniques. With thought and observation, he tells a story in his commercials with the same paradigm that a great book, play or film does. He engages and beguiles, giving just enough information to draw the audience in.
He has helmed commercials for Samsung, Dove, BMW, Sainsbury’s, Delta and Audi. Stuart has worked with respected agencies such as 72andSunny, Leo Burnett, Ogilvy & Mather, Deutsch and Anomaly.
