ACNE Signs Director Tim Hamilton
Integrated production company ACNE has signed internationally awarded comedy director Tim Hamilton. Hamilton is best known for his dry, irreverent sense of humour as exemplified in some of the popular films he has helmed and co-wrote, including Truth in Advertising, a Cannes International Film Festival selection, and its sequel The Reel Truth, which was commissioned by Saatchi & Saatchi London for the Cannes Lions.
Hamilton is a versatile director who has worked all around the world on a variety of mediums including TV, film, commercials, and music videos. He has extensive commercial directing experience and has shot hundreds of commercials for well-known brands including Bud Light, Lexus, and Verizon, to name a few.
“Tim is a brilliant person and a super smart director,” notes US CEO Jesper Palsson. “We have admired his work for quite some time now. He has a background of directing such notable actors as Jeff Daniels, John Cleese and Diane Keaton. I believe that this together with his fun and playful approach to directing will add a lot. Everyone here is thrilled to have him as part of the team!”
Hamilton began his directing career working on music videos for local bands in his home country of Canada. His work has earned him a bevy of prestigious awards including an Epica, Cresta, and several ADDYs.
