Director Jesse Richards is a visual magician, specialising in fast-paced TVCs and online content.
Just don’t ask him to do a card trick.

Jesse is at home with witty dialogue, cheeky humour, and honest, heartfelt, thought-provoking pieces. His adaptive and enthusiastic approach to directing enables him to extract the best performance from talent, and work collaboratively and effectively with crews. Jesse injects all his projects with boundless energy, fostering creativity and camaraderie to yield the best results.

He has worked across celebrated advertising campaigns such as Movember's 90s inspired Dial-a-dad series, spruiking a new parenting resource tool for parents, a tongue-twisting dialogue packed comedy piece for McCain's Beer Battered Chips, a sci-fi techy bonanza for TedX Melbourne and a less sci-fi but still techy spot for Reece's design app (oooh fancy).

In the narrative/fiction category, his short film Where We Live has been selected for over 30 festivals worldwide and won accolades across many of them.
