Biscuit Filmworks has today announced the addition of Rosie May Bird Smith to its directorial roster in the UK and Europe.
Rosie May Bird Smith is an emerging British comedy director with a strong unique style and ability to blend humour with heart. She is an award-winning writer and director working across film and commercials and specialises in script writing, film craft and comedy.
Bird Smith began her career as a creative, quickly gaining attention for her sharp wit and clever storytelling working on a range of high-profile films for some of the world’s largest and most influential brands. Her work has been featured at numerous film festivals and online platforms and in 2022 she was awarded ‘Best young and emerging talent’ at the British Arrows and ranked in the top three films globally for ‘Best Use of Humour’ at Kinsale. Her latest short ‘Herd Immunity’ has received global recognition, winning Gold at the British Short Film Awards, alongside a 1.4 award for Brilliant Filmmaking and ‘Best Film’ and ‘Best Director’ at the Papaya Films Young Directors Gala. Her first commercial campaign for Asda received four British Arrow nominations and Rosie was named in Campaign Magazine as one of the future leaders and rising stars of 2022. Whatever guise it takes, Rosie’s work is always interesting, unexpected, and personified by a certain wit, reflecting her determination to make her audience laugh, sit up and pay attention.
Rosie is currently in development on a short narrative film.
“Rosie is such an exciting new talent with a trademark sense of humour and we are very happy she has joined us at Biscuit.” says Rupert Reynolds-Maclean, managing director at Biscuit UK. “Her instincts as a comedy director are very good and we are looking forward to working with her.”
