BIO

ANDY LAMBERT’s first film was Live From Britain, a 52 minute cine-essay looking at the construction of national identity during the Thatcher era commissioned by Channel 4. He subsequently made several more documentaries for television, including a surreal history of shopping malls for BBC. He then moved into drama with two short films: The Accidental Conspiracy, for Film London, a comedy-thriller that takes paranoia to its absurd limits; and More is Less, for the BFI & Channel 4, featuring Eddie Marsan in a comedy about a young couple in London who are struck with ‘option paralysis’ on a Saturday night.

Andy then began directing TV commercials and worked for a string of top companies including Partizan, Blink, HSI and now 76 Ltd. His ability to embrace film genres and iconic references to humorous effect has created a reputation for entertaining and well-crafted commercials for top brands such as Nike, Nokia, Guinness, Three, Honda and MasterCard. His Deer Hunter spoof for Revels, his Chitty Chitty Bang Bang recreation for the UK’s Road Tax Office and his zombie homage for The Samaritans are all well-loved examples of pastiche advertising and are a testament to his cinematic sensibility.

But he also feels equally at home with more fragmented stories, observational vignette-based ads (his E.On “wind” campaign, for instance), and more intimate small-scale storytelling (eg. his Bonne Maman ad), always relishing the opportunity to run with a captivating idea, adding atmosphere and wit where ever he can.

His funny and riotous spot for The Sun newspaper promoting their 2018 World Cup coverage has won several awards including the Gold Sportel Awards for the best piece of sports advertising in the world.

Andy is also the creator of the award-winning The MUTE Series, video snacks served dry, in which each film is made according to a set of three strict rules: 1) no dialogue 2) no camera movement 3) only one shot. Tubefilter said “The MUTE Series represents the spirit of digital content…”
