Ed is an image and picture obsessive. He writes, is also a musician and takes lots of photographs. See his (film only) instagram feed @morrisism. Ed came to directing from advertising where he was described as one of the most awarded Creatives of his generation. His work has been entered in to the USA's Clio hall of fame and many of the UK's famed D&AD Annuals.
In his debut year at Rattling Stick Ed won first prize at the Young Director Award at Cannes.
Since joining Rattling Stick he has directed ads for The Royal Navy, Weight Watchers, Greenpeace, The Sun, Virgin Media, Adidas, Mencap, British Heart Foundation and many more.
With a passion for music and film he has also made fast headway in to the music industry. He was credited on Ibeyi’s debut album for directing all released videos. His film for We Are Shining & Eliza Doolittle’s ‘Killing’ was described online as “the best promo of the year” resulting in Ed being commissioned by Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja for a release on his Battlebox label. The resulting film was "Mad Lifeline”. Most recently, Ed directed the film for Massive Attack’s ‘Come Near Me’ and both ‘Mad Lifeline’ and ‘Come Near Me’ have been screened by the Hammer Museum, in LA.
Ed works in close collaborated with Richard Russell of XL records where he is resident film and picture taker at Residence La Revolution. See Ed’s work for this project at instagram feed @everythingisrecorded. Their Lee Scratch Perry “I AM PAINT” project resulted in the release being voted as the most collectable record of the year by The Vinyl Factory.
With his varied interests and background in writing Ed brings an abundance of ideas to the table of any collaboration.
