Director Adam Butcher Joins Hoi Polloi

Hoi Polloi have welcomed Adam Butcher to their growing roster. Adam is a master of many crafts…as a teenager he started making computer games in his bedroom, before deciding to become a director full time. He now directs comedy, both live-action and animation.

Adam has won multiple awards for his work with the BBC as part of their in-house creative team. He has also had four of his short films picked as Vimeo Staff Picks, one of these becoming a ‘Best of Year’. Adam has directed work for MTV, Comedy Central, and Maverick Media, amongst others. 

Adam adds: "This is a really strange time for filmmakers. Thankfully, some of the work I've enjoyed creating the most has completely avoided 'normal' live-action footage, instead using animation, archive, mixed-media or just good ol' cardboard-and-sellotape. I hope to keep making stuff that hooks people in and makes them laugh."

Pete Shuttleworth, exec producer at Hoi Polloi comments: “Adam is a great addition for Hoi Polloi. His work is funny and very intelligently made. I’d seen Adam’s award-winning shorts on Vimeo but it's been a pleasure getting to know him. And right now, Adam is a director who we think is really important - he can make people smile and create memorable moments, and work in a variety of mediums to do that.”
