UK production company Hoi Polloi has added comedy and animation Director Adam Butcher to its growing roster of talent.
Butcher has won multiple awards for his work with the BBC as part of its in-house Creative team.
He has also had four of his short films picked as Vimeo Staff Picks, one of these becoming a ‘Best of Year’.
As a teenager Butcher started making computer games in his bedroom, before deciding to become a director full time.
He now directs comedy, both live-action and animation.
He has directed work for MTV, Comedy Central, and Maverick Media, amongst others.
“This is a really strange time for filmmakers”, Butcher said.
“Thankfully, some of the work I’ve enjoyed creating the most has completely avoided ‘normal’ live-action footage, instead using animation, archive, mixed-media or just good ol’ cardboard-and-sellotape.
“I hope to keep making stuff that hooks people in and makes them laugh.”
Pete Shuttleworth, Executive Producer at Hoi Polloi said: “Adam is a great addition for Hoi Polloi. His work is funny and very intelligently made.
“I’d seen Adam’s award-winning shorts on Vimeo but its been a pleasure getting to know him.
“And right now, Adam is a director who we think is really important – he can make people smile and create memorable moments, and work in a variety of mediums to do that.”
