Cameron Harris takes his inspiration from absurdist comedy and a strong pinch of Coen Brothers' influence. His ability to make everyday situations seem ludicrous, and the insane seem normal, is one of his most remarkable abilities. He revels in the unconventional and weaves together comedic performance with imagination, playfulness and a perfect sense of timing. Exclusively repped for the first time in the UK Cameron is the rare resource of accomplished US directing talent, with untapped potential in the UK and Europe.
Cameron has a broad wealth of experience having worked as creative director at agencies such as Leo Burnett - Sydney and Crispin Porter Bogusky - LA, before transitioning into directing commercial comedy with awards including Cannes Lions, Clios and an Emmy nomination for both. He has enjoyed great success working with celebrity talent having directed the likes of David Beckham, Ryan Reynolds, Margot Robbie, Kristen Bell, Shaq, Steph Curry, Seth Meyers and Seth’s dog, Frisbee (to name but a few).
Cameron Harris: “Having grown up in England and Hong Kong - I was constantly being fed a diet of English Comedy. I’m actually a bit of an English comedy nerd. Advertising in the UK has also been a great inspiration, from Tango Sebastian to Monkey and so on - I’m looking forward to the new opportunities in the UK and adding to that list. I’m really excited to be a part of the Park Village family!”
Adam Booth, PV managing partner and EP says: “Cameron has an uncanny comedic knack of being able to make an everyday situation seem farcical and the ability to make the absurd seem somehow normalised! He’s a rare comedy talent, having enjoyed great success with big campaigns over the pond, but somehow is still entirely fresh to the UK market. We can’t wait to start properly peddling his style of anglo/US silliness with brands over here, it feels like there’s a great opportunity.”
Leonie Ellis, PV business development and EP says: “Cameron is a first class comedy director and top guy. I’m stoked he’s joined the PV team. He’s worked with some of the biggest celebrity talent out there, most recently Jane Lynch, and his exceptional performance comedy has graced US screens picking up awards and accolades including the One Show’s Top 10 beer commercial of all time. I can not wait to connect his incredible talent here, he’s the new comedy pony in the UK stable and I can’t wait to see who jumps on board first to make some outstanding work!”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessPark Village, Wed, 25 May 2022 10:16:45 GMT
