Bio

Grantley Smith

Director

Fresh out of high school, Grantley blagged his way onto a movie set masquerading as a Sculptor. Armed with nothing but polystyrene and a pocketful of dreams, he chiseled his way through a string of American features. Not content with just shaping foam, Grantley spent countless weekends making his own short film, which ultimately scooped up awards across the globe and inadvertently paved his way into TV commercials. Since then he’s been a fixture in the advertising scene, celebrated for his comedic genius and uncanny ability to straddle the line between deadpan and downright bonkers.

He’s a maestro at extracting stellar performances from anyone, whether they’re seasoned pros or just your everyday Joes. His wealth of experience and creative flair in comedy also extend to helping agencies carve out clever and budget-friendly solutions. Add to that a laser-sharp eye for detail, a brain teeming with technical know-how, and an unquenchable love for Baileys that some may find concerning.”
