In 2016 Tom turned his hand to directing. His debut film for giffgaff’s Halloween campaign 'The Music Box" met with great critical acclaim, inspiring him to also direct 2017’s campaign "The 2AM" a film that perfectly captured the current zeitgeist and received numerous picks of the day.
The 2017 campaign the Big Swim directed by Sean Thompson garnered a much-heralded position in the APA Top 50 and this years Small vs Big, a one-shot film beautiful in its simplicity, directed by Rattling Stick’s Ed Morris is tipped to fair well on the awards circuit.
