Director / DOP
Don't let this laid back coastal squall fool you, Lee can quite quickly become a hurricane that won't let anything stand in the way of a perfect shot. With the ability to capture lightning in a bottle, Lee is a director with years of expereince. Lee’s strength is in his ability to shoot beautifully and at the same time capture an authenticity so seldom seen in advertising. If a camera was a gun, Lee would have very weird trophy's adorning the wall of his drawing room, because he's shot literally everything there is to shoot. From television ads to international long format TV shows and movies and everything imaginable in between. He doesn't like to mention the fact that he's won an Emmy for cinematography, and would prefer to talk about Liverpool.
Like the high veld thunderstorm where he's from Gavin can be loud but also thoughtful and energetic. He spent 18 years at top ad agencies winning awards all over the world and eventually ascended to creative director at FoxP2 before a career in directing called to him. He has written and "starred in" (more accurately the camera was mainly pointed at him) a movie that went top of the box office set in his home town called Straight Outta Benoni. He is one of the first South Africans to ever feature on MTV worldwide along with his Crazy Monkey crew. He is obsessed with popular (and more obscure) culture in almost any form and takes delight in writing, especially great dialogue and humour.
