Stuart Hackshaw

Stuart is a commercials director specialising in both comedy and lifestyle.

Last year Stuart directed Christmas campaigns for Dunelm and Barclaycard, while his recent work for Hendrick’s Gin saw him employ his trademark sense of humour to create a set of 1970s-inspired films around World Cucumber Day. His inventive editing techniques have resulted in beautifully crafted films for Holiday Inn and Farmdrop, the latter a TVC distributed worldwide.

Stuart’s independent work, meanwhile, has a strong focus on drama. His beautiful short film The Nature of Daylight sees the romantic recollections of a relationship slowly start to unravel as a man tries desperately to hold onto his past. The film is continuing to play at festivals following screenings at The Smalls and Cinecity in 2016.
