Molly Manners has joined the company’s directorial roster in the U.K. Molly is a versatile director and writer whose natural comedic instincts and arresting art direction shine through in her commercial, TV, branded content, and short film projects.
Born and raised in London, Molly began her career at Channel 4’s in-house agency 4Creative where she created award-winning TV promo campaigns including ‘Funny Fortnight’ and ‘Short Shorts,’ and the viral satirical short form hit ‘Mini in Chelsea.’ Her work has earned awards from D&AD, The British Arrows, and the Creative Circle, and she was named as one of Campaign Magazine’s Future Creative Leaders in 2018.
In addition to her experience as a creative and director in the commercial world, Molly also directs longer form narrative projects. Her short film ‘Here Boy,’ which received funding through Creative England + BFI’s Funny Girls/iShorts program, went on to be picked up by Amazon, and she recently directed an episode of Sky Arts’ comedy series ‘Urban Myths’ focusing on a 1984 encounter between Andy Warhol and Donald Trump.
“Molly is a brilliant comedy director with a great eye and instincts. Her work always makes you want to keep coming back for more and she’s a lot of fun to collaborate with. I’m really looking forward to working with her,” said Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, managing director of Biscuit Filmworks UK.
