So I Can
The Big Swim
Sean Thompson is a multi-award winning creative and ECD.
His writing credits include the Honda films: Grrr, Everyday and The Impossible Dream. He has won two of the much coveted black and 12 yellow D&AD pencils, the Cannes Titanium and Grand Prix, Adweek's Ad of the Decade, the One Show's Best in Show and their Best Car ad of the last 25 years.
Sean began his directing career shooting for Adidas. The "Sports Art" films feature stars such as David Beckham, Lionel Messi and Jonah Lomu baring their souls in a moving and inspiring series. The athletes use art, just like Muhammad Ali used to, to visualise their journeys from their most harrowing life changing events to achieving their ultimate goals. This hugely successful campaign won at: Cannes, the British Arrows and is on permanent archive in the Museum of Modern Art New York.
Sean delivers a very filmic look across many different genres and likes to get to the heart and soul of the subject and raise the idea to greater heights. He loves the creative use of sound combined with unexpected music and sees it as an often neglected part of filmmaking.
His love of shooting sporting heroes and his knowledge of automotive have culminated in his recent films for BMW with the mini epics Castle and Robot, Formula E Electric Racing, Volvo and a fragrance spot with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
He is a screenwriter who specialises in writing everything from comedy to horror. Again, proving his love of diversity of genres. Sean has proven to be at his best when he hits that unexpected sweet spot between light and dark.
