Azhur is a graduate of the London Film School and is repped for commercials non-exclusively through Irresistible Films in London.
His style of directing is borne out of his love of contemporary and classic cinema and he is a dedicated and imaginative filmmaker. His work has a rich attention to detail with stunning cinematography and art direction, that even his short films feel like they’re a slice out of a high-end commercial feature. Not afraid to listen to ideas from others and still maintaining a clear vision of his films means he always gets the best from his cast and crew, with production values that belie the budgets of his films.
His film work has made him an alumni of the Berlinale Talent Campus as well as B3 TalentLab run by BBC Films and Skillset and even interest from major studios including Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox. Most recently he was selected for Think Shoot Distribute run by the BFI during the London Film Festival in 2012.
His work with clients, ranging from Hyundai, Microsoft Advertising, Ford Motors, JWT Team Detroit and BBC Films, has garnered interest across the world. He was nominated for a Young Director Award at the Cannes Golden Lions in 2007 for his 50th Anniversary Trailer for the London Film School.
Azhur is happy working at the forefront of innovative digital technology and marrying that with a solid understanding of the craft of filmmaking. Which means he is ready to tackle any project with an infectious can-do attitude.
