His spots have garnered awards at the ADC & Cannes Lions.  Recent clients include VW, Skittles, Sony, Wrigleys & Emirates.

A passionate and multi-awarded documentary maker, Justin has burst onto the commercials scene in recent months with a film for retail giants Next “Nightowls”,  a VR project for Shelter & an emotional online film for Freestyle Libre about a revolutionary device for diabetics. This is in addition to his critically acclaimed short documentary “Thick Skin” that hoovered up awards in 2015 including the prestigious Best Documentary Award at the Royal Television Society Awards.

Encompassing everything from online films to VR, Mad Cow Content has already been incredibly busy in the first half of the year, lensing projects for Shelter, Abbots Healthcare, Nyetimber, Liz Earle Beauty, Mirabeau Wines & X-Blades Drone Racing team.  This is in addition to previous work for clients such as DFT, Met Police, Visa, Dove & The Times.
