Blake Claridge is a director driven by compelling, emotive performance - and is the latest in a flurry of top talent to join the expanding, global offering at producer-led company, Dog Eat Dog
. Blake’s got a natural feel for shooting with people, whether they are huge stars or your neighbour around the corner he has the ability to create a world to put them at ease, get in close and capture the most from any situation.
Blake has worked across a diverse range of challenging shoots, from delicate subjects like domestic abuse and dementia to projects that have reconnected broken relationships and connected communities. He has the sensibilities and mentality to adapt his style to the brief whilst keeping an emotive layer threaded through his work.
Blake comments: “As a director with ambition, it’s all about the team to make things happen, and I’m super excited to start this next step with Dog Eat Dog, not only because they’re a nice bunch, they’re also a great team of producers with an intriguing track record. This is what I have been looking for, not only to elevate my work and push me further but also be part of a new story unfolding.”
Cutting his teeth in the world of music videos, he learnt how to get the most out of a tight budget and after working agency side for a number of years he has the knowledge and understanding to elevate an idea.
Along the way he has won Cannes Lions, Webby’s, even an MTV award, but to him, it’s not about accolades, it’s about the people he’s met, the stories he’s held onto and the friends he’s made. Experiences that don’t just sit on a shelf.
Harvey Ascott, Dog Eat Dog founder / EP, commented: “After meeting Blake five years ago at a bustling Soho party through a mutual friend, we kept in touch and I followed Blake's work. He is a fantastic addition to the dog eat dog roster, and we really look forward to working with him. He is a talent!”
