Clockwork Films Signs Director Laurence Thrush

Clockwork Films has signed director Laurence Thrush to its roster.

Thrush is a seasoned and accomplished director whose cinematic and poetic style stands out and captivates audiences. Being a writer and editor also, lends itself perfectly to Thrush's stunning visual storytelling.

Early in his directing career, he was short-listed for the Best Young Director Award at the Clio Advertising Awards and the Cannes Lions International Festival. He has since directed a wide range of commercials for clients such as HP, Amstel Light, Adobe, McDonalds, and MasterCard, picking up numerous awards including Cannes Lions, LIAA, One Show and Clio.

Thrush's first feature film, "Left Handed" was awarded Best Feature at The Milan Film Festival, The Rhode Island Film Festival, L'Aquila Film Festival and The Japan Film Festival. "Pursuit of Loneliness", his second feature film as a writer/director, made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2012. "A Different Light", a new documentary based on the design and construction of a school for visually and hearing impaired students in Finland, will be coming in 2018.

Says Jamie Cohen, managing director, Clockwork Films: "We're ridiculously excited to welcome Laurence to the family. His storytelling and cinematic ability to capture a performance or moment in time is second to none... Plus he looks a little like Jake Gyllenhaal... which lifts the average in the office."
