Andrew Gunn


Director

Andrew is an experienced and versatile film and television director whose diverse work encompasses high-end drama, comedy and short films. Having previously directed some of the most high-profile dramas of recent years, in 2020 he completed several episodes and the finale of the highly anticipated first season of Get Even, a female-led teen thriller for Netflix and BBC. He has worked with Academy Award nominees and BAFTA award-winners, and counts amongst his collaborators Andy Serkis, Imelda Staunton, Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, David Morrissey, John Simm, Ian Puleston-Davies, Felicity Jones, Sophie Okonedo, Ian Hart and Stephen Tomkinson. His passion for compelling performance and potent visual storytelling is apparent from his work on hit shows such as the Emmy-winning Life on Mars, Doctor Who, Survivors, Wild at Heart and Primeval. His work extends to comedy, most notably the BAFTA-winning sitcom Green Wing starring Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig, for which he created the signature visual style. Andrew is based in the North West of England and available to work worldwide.

Director

"I first worked with Andrew many years ago developing a thriller script for BBC Drama. As a Director he has always challenged expectation and found the heart of the drama both in performance and style. I was delighted to work with him again recently and to see that all that passion and talent is still there, and delivering day in day out on and off screen."
