Wilson has worked with artists such as Arcade Fire, Tame Impala, Royal Blood and The Arctic Monkeys
London based RIFF RAFF Films are delighted to announce the arrival of David Wilson, a celebrated multi award winning music video and commercial director who has worked with artists and bands such as Arcade Fire, Tame Impala, Royal Blood, Arctic Monkeys and clients such as Cadburys,Ikea,O2,Race for Life and Beagle Street to name but a few.
David has received numerous accolades including D&AD pencils, British Arrows, Creative Circle and MTV Awards as well as a Grammy nomination for Arcade Fire “We Exist” in 2015.
2015 ended with him being named best director at the UK Music Video Awards.
He began life as an illustrator but fell into making film when he made a video for his end of year graduation, and since then, he’s been gone from strength to strength. His unique visual style coupled with his emotional story telling is a powerful combination, which he has very much made his own style.
Matthew Fone says:
“I’ve always been a big fan of David’s and feel he is a natural fit with Riff Raff’s culture of directors in terms of his ideas and visual imagination. Now David is back living in London we feel it is the perfect time for us both to reengage with the creative world of advertising where I think his blend of craft, energy and aesthetic will be greatly welcomed.
“To be joining Riff Raff is a leap across to new territory for me. Having been signed to Blink Productions for the whole of my commercial and music video career (eight and a half years!), and how explosively successful our partnership had been, to cross to another production company was not a decision I took lightly.
Having known Matthew Fone at Blink with all the work he did with Dougal Wilson, I witnessed first hand the energy and commitment he put into his work. To see that translated to a production company has been incredible to witness. Riff Raff have been a much needed fresh burst of energy and drive in the commercials and music video production landscape. Riff Raff has proven itself to be beyond impressive in its ambition and commitment to achieving creative excellence within the commercial and music video sphere. I'm very excited to be a part of its next chapter."
