Welcome to NERD! We love the idea of your casting approach and engaging creative concept. What a great way to approach a serious subject and make it relatable to the audience of today... as it happens we have the right NERD for the job. He is a Cannes Lion winner for his comedy & performance TESTIMONIAL spot (see below). Hylton strongly believes that playful creative concepts that also feel human and natural are the best way to communicate and capture global audiences. That way we directly relate to them through engaging films on a positive level. Below are just a few examples that showcase his performance/casting led work and also importantly those that capture great performance from children in a very genuine/human way, with light humour. We need a sprinkle of each of those elements to bring to life a purposeful film that we can all be proud of.
Never wanting to be pigeonholed into a specific style, Hylton has built up a diverse range of directing abilities but favours shooting performance, slight humour and storytelling. He loves toying with human interaction and exploring relationships. Let's not forget the elegantly mix of CGI elements and visual effects to further enhance his creations. Having had such wide shoot folio means that he can comfortably shoot anything from yummy foods to real people,children and family moments, even action packed car spots, stunts and animals. He is very hands on, on set. He really does own every situation and is a joy to be around when he is working his magic.
