Jeremy Holden

Commercials Director

  • Freelancer: Available

I am an awarded commercial’s director with a decades worth of directorial experience. During which time I managed a boutique production house that produced more than 50 commercials, and garnered a number of awards. Prior to directing, I spent 7 years working as a motion designer, and as the Creative Director of a motion-design company. As a consequence of my background, my work has maintained a passion for VFX and animation heavy work, alongside a playful sense of humour and a love of performance.

I am constantly excited by new prospects in film and advertising. Every job has it’s own peculiarities, which is part of what I love about this job. You need to think afresh with each new project. Entertained by all aspects of film-making, my work has crossed many sphere’s - from performance, kids and animals, to pixel-blasting animation pieces. In compliment to my creative work, my management skills and experience have informed my passion to identify the business needs of my clients; and to deliver a product tailored for those needs. My skills extend beyond the fields of film production and design, through to business management and planning.

My work has been awarded internationally, and some of my clients have included Diageo, Liberty, Ford, Danone, Heineken, Unilever, Proctor And Gamble, Duracell, Cell C, FNB, Chicken Licken, Neotel, Vodacom, and Standard Bank.
