Raised in postwar Stevenage, the new town to end all new towns…Trevor is a restlessly creative, versatile individual who began his career as an art director. He worked in several top London ad agencies producing many high profile campaigns, most notably ‘Tell Sid’ for British Gas and Mansfield Clothes, which won numerous awards including a Gold Clio for Best Art Direction.
His directorial debut came when he made The Dogs, which was nominated as Best European Short Film and described by Time Out as “…somewhere between Lynch and Scorsese.”
Today he is one of London’s best-established commercials directors. Trevor’s commercials reflect a consummate filmmaker with an authentic style and the ability to capture well-observed natural performances. Work for British Meat, VW, Centraal Beheer and Kit Kat are amongst his award winning work, together with the harrowing anti-drink drive ad Dave that he won a gold BTA Award for.
He has directed commercials for numerous clients this year, including an international spot filmed at the prestigious Spanish Riding School in Vienna for Wiener Zucker of Austria.
Trevor recently directed Soliloquy in the Dust - a short film shot on the site of Shakespeare’s first theatre in Shoreditch, the first director to work there in 400 years. His short film The Soul Rescuer premiered at the prestigious Los Angeles Short Film Fest in 2008 and was Highly Commended in the Turner Classic Short Film Competition at The London Film Festival. He is at present finishing an edgy episodic dance film entitled The Chava Nova, shot on pocket hi-def cameras.
