Wood’s fascination with film began young – experimenting with an analogue camera and his intrigue has grown since. He experimented with scratch film loops and studied design before consolidating his career in filmmaking and digital media, working with a myriad of clients and honing his skill-set.

“Wood has received acclaim, including a Gold Cannes Lion for his interactive music video for the Pet Shop Boys’ Integral.”

Over the years he’s developed a very distinctive style often blending live action and animation. He believes that his strong design bent and experience allow him to go into each project with an open mind and tailor unique and emotionally informed work that speaks to core brand values.

Wood has received critical acclaim and awards for his work across multiple genres including The One Show, Spikes, British Design Museum Top 100 List, and a Gold Lion at Cannes for his interactive music video for the Pet Shop Boys’ Integral.
