Who does Jack Howard think he is?
Hiya, I'm Jack. I'm a passionate, excitable and collaborative filmmaker - originally from Nottingham, now based in London. I have a love for producing cinematic images and a skill for working with actors to create natural, funny performances.
In 2022, I directed 'The Pick Up', a commercial short film for Three x Honor which won a Kinsale Shark for Best Comedy Direction, Best Commercial Short at the British Short Film Awards and was selected as one of the six best creative commercials. I finished the year by directing the official music video for 'Together This Christmas' for Maisie Peters x Amazon Prime.
In 2023, I will be directing a CBBC series.
I've been making my own shorts for over 10 years as part of comedy duo 'Jack & Dean'. In that time, our work has amassed over 73 million views. The highlight was making 2 seasons of 'Jack & Dean of All Trades' which co-starred BAFTA winner Jessica Hynes and won a 'Best Series' award.
In the commercial world, I've worked with brands such as Dominos, Campari, Hula Hoops, Jim Beam, and Sky. In 2021, I directed the TV ad for ZenAuto starring Matt King (only bloody SuperHans).
In 2018, I was selected to take part in the Sundance New Voices Lab for a script which was later optioned and developed by Merman. In 2021, I directed 'East Mode' for Comedy Central. 'Emotional Baggage' (comedy short) was a finalist at the LOCO film festival, and 'Build A Problem by dodie' (visual album) won the Audience Award at the British Short Film Awards.
