Represented Directors: Tom Radford
Tom Radford, Singapore based comedy director
Tom is a writer, a director and an avid fan of comedy. He also does standup and has a great network of other standups who regularly collaborate with him on his creations. He understands the structure of comedy and jokes, revels in slapstick and setup gags and knows funny when he sees it.
In the past year of so, Tom has directed comedy ads and online programming for:
Toyota, Subway, Flextronics, Cisco, Amadeus, Visa and Dentsu.
Tom says, “Comedy directors must be open minded, audacious, improvisational and reactive. Whilst all projects are meticulously planned, Tom believes that if someone has a great idea on the day that adds value then let’s make time to shoot it. These moments can be the differentiator between good and great content.”
Here’s Tom’s showreel. You’ll spot a lot of Paul’s DOP work on this.
