London based production studio Outsider has announced the signing of British director Freddie Waters for worldwide commercial representation.
Waters started directing in 2017 with a promo to open Jack Whitehall's arena tour. Dim Sum, his first short film starring Phil Wang about a Chinese family (Freddie studied Mandarin at University), came soon after, and is now in development with Tiger Aspect as an 8 x 1 hour comedy series.
His latest short, Luger, written by Freddy Syborn (Sex Education, Killing Eve 2) and starring Lolly Adefope, Ellie White and Jack Whitehall, perfectly epitomises Freddie’s style; a fresh, contemporary script aligned with great casting deftly directed.
Alongside multiple projects for Jack Whitehall, including the opening film for the 2019 Brit Awards, Freddie has worked with a host of British comedy talent including James Corden, David Walliams and Matt Berry and sporting talent from the English Cricket team to Usain Bolt.
On joining Outsider Freddie said: “When I started directing a few years ago I made a list of my favourite 15 commercials directors for comedy and performance. A third of them were with Outsider. From that day on I set my sights on joining that roster. So it feels pretty damn exciting a few years on to now be part of that family.”
Outsider EP Simon Elborne said: “Freddie represents everything that is fresh and compelling about the new generation of British comedy storytellers. He’s an Outsider through and through and we can’t wait to get started.”
