ABOUT LIAM AND GRANT
Directing duo Liam Kan and Grant Hodgson (that also go by the name ‘Who?’), are an incredibly versatile and smart team who handle the challenges of humour, performance and visual effects. Even though the work is eclectic in some ways, with a massive pool of work that incorporates storytelling, seamless effects, great performances and humour it has a flow and energy that is consistent and a level of quality, cinematic feel and strong narrative that only an experienced director brings consistently. This profile is full of fun stuff to watch including talking animals, time machines, revamped iconic films, spoofs of famous films, DJ kittens, inappropriate children, big stunts, and the odd magic trick.
Both directors are ex-editors, which puts them in good stead for storytelling. Directing some fairly iconic commercials, for some great brands – like Virgin Trains ‘The Return of the Train’, the very popular Tomcat series for Bacardi Breezer, Audi ‘Duel’ (the spoof on the Aussie film), Volvic ‘Cave Man’ & Peugeot with the ever enigmatic David Blaine. Other credits include spots for Honda with speedster Valentino Rossi, Citroen, Rover, VW, Opel, Schweppes, Homebase, Kellogg’s, Camel, Nissan, Windex, Walkers, Staropramen and many, many (seriously – many!) others.
Visual effects are not just for the sake of it and always seems to be incorporated into the storyline… something to help the narrative and not stand out as an ‘effect’ per se. Likewise you’ll see some truly engaging automotive content in the profile here but there’s always a good story over blatant sheet metal.
This profile is one of our favourites in the roster and we hope you dig deep into the diverse content, find inspiration and be excited to find a project for the duo to get involved in in some early story development – we love that!
