Brett Foraker began his career as a painter and photographer before turning to film-making. His early career was spent developing the brand identities of channels such as TCM, Film4 and E4. He has worked with such luminaries as Ellen Von Unworth, David Lachapelle, and Jim Fiscus as both copy writer and art director.
In 2004 he was appointed the youngest-ever Creative Director of Channel 4 (UK) where he directed the multi-award winning C4 Idents and Faces of 4 campaigns.
Since then, he has been making adverts through Ridley Scott Associates where he has directed award-winning campaigns for Toyota, Sony, British Heart Foundation, and Syfy to name but a few. Among his many accolades are awards from Cannes Lion, Creative Circle, BTAA and the coveted Black Pencil from D&AD.
He was the guiding force behind the 4Creative, one of the UK’s most lauded creative and production hot shops. He has been on Campaign’s A-List several times and in Saatchi’s Young Director’s Showcase in Cannes. His work has appeared frequently in Creative Review, Boards, Shots and David’s Reviews.
In 2009 he was selected to direct Timothy Spall and Natasha McElhone in Deep and Crisp and Even for Sky’s ground-breaking 10-Minute Tales series. His next short was the festival favourite Natural Selection starring Simon Callow and James D’Arcy. Drifter Pictures, a book of his photography, is due to be published in 2012.
He currently splits his time between London and Los Angeles where he is developing several feature film projects.
