Mediapool Personnel Col Spector

film director

Col is an award-winning filmmaker who began his career producing and directing films for the BBC. There he wrote and directed various short comedy dramas including ‘Fireworks’ (starring Dave Schneider), ‘Consumer Advice’ (for BAFTA award-winning series ‘Short Change’) and ‘Parklife’ (for RTS award-winning series ‘Scene’). He also directed several series including the acclaimed youth music show ‘Mad About Music’.

He went on to write and direct the short comedy drama ‘New Year’s Eve’ starring Keira Knightley, before making his feature film debut with the ‘un-romantic’ comedy ‘Someone Else’ with Stephen Mangan and Susan Lynch.

Col’s portfolio includes commercials (including Mars, AOL, Lea & Perrins and Snickers), branded content and documentaries. He handles characters and their relationships with a light sensitivity, delivering an optimistic, witty and often romantic body of work.

As a writer/director, his latest theatrical release is the relationship comedy ‘Honeymooner’ and stars Gerard Kearns and Daisy Haggard. It premiered at the 64th Edinburgh Film Festival in June 2010 and was released in the UK in January 2011.
