Biscuit Filmworks UK Signs Director David Magnier

Publish date:

London, UK – September 29, 2015 – Biscuit Filmworks UK today announced the signing of David Magnier to its directorial roster. An up-and-coming director based in London, Magnier was shortlisted for the Young Director Award at this year's Cannes Lions for his :60 test for the Road Safety Authority ,"Flashback.” His knowledge of post-production and visual effects informs his innovative visual style, which shrewdly incorporates effects to tell stories from distinct and unexpected perspectives.

Originally from Ireland, Magnier was drawn to film and design from an early age. He started his career working in post-production at Dublin’s Lotus Film, before departing for London to earn a Masters in Screen Design for Film and Television from Kingston University. Joining forces with T.J. O’Grady-Peyton to form directorial duo PONDR, the two created a number of memorable spots and music videos, notably “Amazing Bodies” for HBF Insurance and “See Right Through” for German music producer Tensnake (starring Allen Leech of “Downton Abbey”). Now a solo director, Magnier made a splash at Cannes with the visually striking “Flashback” for Road Safety Authority, which uniquely uses shape as a storytelling tool. In addition to his work as a director, Magnier also owns record label The House of Disco, and DJs throughout Europe.

“I was really drawn to Biscuit’s roster and the depth and variety of work that they produce – it really felt like the perfect fit and they immediately understood what my aesthetic is about,” said Magnier. “I’m excited to grow with Biscuit and to have the opportunity to really take my solo career to a new level with their support.”
