Hamish Rothwell’s enduring career in advertising began fittingly; with an indestructible ad for G-Shock Watches. The campaign became a global hit and launched Hamish into an international career that took him to the Superbowl for Hyundai and Bai Bai Bai. Over fifty awards collect dust on his mantle including Cannes Lions, Clio, D&AD One Show, ADC, and LIA. It all kicked off as soon as he graduated from the London Film School, quickly earning a spot in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase.

Hamish has an idiosyncratic voice that still appeals to the broadest audience. He plays the ridiculous straight, toying with the boundary between humour and drama. He grounds the cinematic grandeur by building intricate worlds which his characters convincingly inhabit.
