Richard, born and raised South African, product of London Film School, Y&R visualiser to mid-nineties, and then became part of the UK Soho madness with a signing to Geofrey Seymour Films & Livewire, and later with the eclectic ASD Lionheart roster of directors.
Says Gary King, Executive producer of Picture Tree, "Richard loves pushing the boundaries of film and photography and believes copywriters and film editors (which he has also done) make the best Directors. Well, I'm not sure about that, but we are looking forward to having him in our fold and believe that someone like Richard can really contribute with a fresh look at our South African work."
After spending 15 years in the UK and Europe and directing for such likes as Cadillac, Stella Artois, Elbow and Sigur Ros he returns to South Africa mixing his roots with a truly international edge. He is now based here in South Africa with his Icelandic wife, their kids and two rescue dogs.
