Mike Sumpter

Film Director & Creative Copywriter

I am a Film Director, Creative Copywriter and Content Creator with considerable industry experience, predominately across TV Advertising, Sponsorship and Music Videos, including seven years at Channel 5 as Senior Director of Commercials and Sponsorship.  

Clients and brands I have written and directed for include Microsoft XBox, Ocado, L'Oreal, Paramount Pictures, Pringles, McDonalds, Vitabiotics, Very.Co.Uk, Reed.Co.Uk, British Gas, Tepilo, Novotel Hotels, Jackpot Casino, Express Newspapers and more.

My areas of expertise include writing, pitching and directing across varied commercial projects, liasing with external clients and overseeing jobs from inception to completion across a wide range of budgets and timeframes.

My directing work has ranged from small tabletop setups to large-scale studio and location scenarios, and from purely action orientated sequences to dialogue based performance. I have regularly worked with different animation and visual effects techniques and have a thorough knowledge of all aspects of the film production process.
