Stuart Hackshaw is an award winning filmmaker, currently based in the UK. As a commercials director he has worked extensively for some of the world’s leading brands, creating a wide range of content, from TVCs to travel series.
From a young age he developed a real passion for visual storytelling, inspired by the likes of Guillermo Del Toro and Jean Pierre Jeunet, where craft is as important as subject. This approach lent itself well to the world of commercials as well as in his independent work, where his short films have picked up multiple awards and played at festivals around the world.
In his spare time Stuart loves to travel into the wildernesses of the world to fulfil his other major passion for landscape photography, which brings a brief but welcome change of pace to his creative interests.
Stuart is currently developing his first feature project.
