London-based HunkyDory Films has added director Trevor McMahan to its roster.
After starting out at Smuggler as the 'third arm' of directing collective HAPPY (Guy Shelmerdine and Richard Farmer), Trevor collaborated creatively with a number of the world’s top commercial directors – Ivan Zacharias, Ringan Ledwidge, and Noam Murro, to name a few. His work aims to defy genre but always deliver on a creative vision – to push each project toward its own iconic voice. And sometimes really shiny awards.
With a mix of authentic performances and cinematic storytelling, both humanity and humor, Trevor has worked for clients including Coca Cola, Google, Visa, T-Mobile, McDonald’s, Jeep, and Cadbury. Shiny-awards-collecting-dust-in-his-garage include multiple Cannes Gold Lions, the cfp-e Young Director’s Award, and a certificate of induction into MOMA’s permanent collection as an AICP honoree. But the focus has always been on telling the next story better than the last. And there’s still a some room on that shelf between the paint thinner and power tools.
John Doris, HunkyDory managing partner, had this to say of his new recruit: "Trevor’s work is so honest and authentic, endearing and humorous storytelling coupled with a rite-of-passage feel good factor, you can’t help smile and fall in love with the narratives he executes and his casting choices at the heart of his stories.”
