A delicious box of poisoned bonbons

a WIZ FILM selection
________________________________________________________________________
This summer billed by the BFI as ‘one of the greatest ever British music video directors’, WIZ started training under Polish master Krzysztof Kieslowski. He began directing with the genuine cult document ‘Weekender’, the groundbreaking and controversial film exploring the 90's burgeoning dance and drug culture.

He has an ability to cast and elicit defiant performances within highly visual narrative, technical precision and always resounding subject matter.
His work is as provocative as it is sensual, and has earned many awards and admirers, including the coveted MVA Icon honour, joining ranks with Anton Corbijn and Jonathan Glazer.

WIZ has made films with some of the most challenging and respected artist’s today, including actors Michael Fassbender, Rosario Dawson, Ben Whishaw, Stephen Graham, Noel Fielding and artists Alexander McQueen, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Massive Attack, Oasis, Chemical Brothers, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Dizzee Rascal, Emeli Sandé, Disclosure, Richard Fearless, Will Young.

He was chosen to create and direct the BBC period drama, ‘The Young Victorians’.

His theatrical debut ‘Tainted Love’, won New Venture Theatre’s best play award.

He's currently developing two features: a contemporary erotic thriller starring Ben Whishaw and a Virtual Reality shamanic drama.

He is a member of BECTU, the Broadcasting, Entertainment, Communications and Theatre Union.

He lives in Brighton, UK.
