Hayley for Smarties

Welcome to NERD! You already know that we love your quirky, colourful, tactile and fun creative. It ticks all our NERDy boxes! For every male director or seasoned one we put up for any project we also put up just as talented & fierce female or young director.... so as it happens we do have a fiercely talented & award winning female Director that crafts in a range of very hand made styles and techniques. Below are just a few examples for you from Hayley that range from puppetry to stop frame and mixed media techniques.. .

In true collaborative spirit Hylton, Cannes Lion winner will collaborate with Hayley to capture those warm and very human interaction between the mum & kids. With over 25 years of experience in creating realistic, natural, optimistic and warm films that capture genuine human moments, those family moments we can all relate to and emotions is something Hylton enjoy most! He often teams up with our animation talent whenever an opportunity for team spirit arises.

Our collaborative attitude is not something we practice internally, NERDs work closely with our clients too from the early development stages of production to create a bespoke look & feel for our hero characters and their worlds too! We want to craft something instantly recognisable that will stand out and grab attention from our audiences each time they re-watch this film. We are flexible in our workflows to ensure highest creative quality output on each one of our carefully crafted films that we can all together be proud of.

Not only do we bring to life TV commercials, digital content, print advertising and OOH/DOOH, but we strongly believe that nurturing talent and championing diversity are the key ingredients to producing powerful visuals that stand out and communicate with real people across the world. That is why we are active diversity & inclusion champions who seek, nurture and support talent from non-traditional backgrounds, female talent and young talent.

We know you have a choice to approach the uber accomplished talent for a project likes this but would you also consider to completely change the career path of a fresh faced, super eager and skilled individual to not just be the creative team to make a director but also change and reshape our industry to be more diverse and inclusive, one film at a time!
