Henry Busby is a jack of all trades. He has a background in painting, photography, and cinematography - something he organically navigated between - and now he’s fast becoming a highly sought-after director for music videos, content and commercials alike.
Growing up playing sports amongst a community of great storytellers in Alabama, his work has instinctively, thus far, focused more on athletes and telling their stories and experiences; though his ability to appreciate people in all guises - and to translate the sad, funny, poetic stories they hold - stretches far beyond sports. Henry joins Rattling Stick from U.S. production company Voyager Creative, where his career was launched. His client list to date includes Everlast, Dick's Sporting Goods, and NBC Sports Network. He’s also made music videos for artists including Algiers, Symmetry and Land of Talk. He’s even experimented with an interactive love story, ‘Endless Summer’.

Rattling Stick are excited about the new addition to the family: “It was obvious to us very quickly that there is something quite special about Henry and we knew he’d make a fantastic addition to our roster. Aside from the fact that - like us - he loves a chat, he's an immensely talented young man who’s built up an incredible body of work in a short space of time. Work that is already hugely accomplished; powerful, evocative and stunning to watch and we’re very excited about seeing what’s to come.” Henry also feels it was a good fit from the get-go. “There was an immediate sense of humour, warmth, and care that I felt with Rattling Stick. They also knew the way to my heart was a beer and a whiskey shot.”
