Multi-award winning comedy and documentary Director, Gabe Turner, a founding partner at Fulwell 73, has signed to Rattling Stick for commercials representation in both the UK and US markets.
Gabe’s incredible body of work transcends both genre and platform with authentic performances, not only from stars of stage, screen, comedy and sport but also those new to being in front of the camera and is accompanied by a natural cinematography that makes his work enormously accessible to his audiences.
His work includes commercials for numerous global brands such as Samsung, Nissan, Honda and Sony, music videos for Demi Lovato, Olly Murs and One Direction, including the epic video for their track ‘Steal My Girl’, which he directed with his brother Ben Turner and ‘Drag Me Down’, which won this year’s ‘Best British Artist Video’ at the Brits.

He also helped develop the Late Late show for 6 weeks with collaborators Ben Winston and James Corden. Gabe will continue as partner of Fulwell73, with Rattling Stick representing him within the UK and U.S advertising markets as a director.
Rattling Stick’s President, Johnnie Frankel comments: ‘We’re excited to have Gabe join us. He is a unique talent and his brilliant mix of comedy and documentary styles will be a great addition to our roster both here and in America. His recent campaign for Samsung, Produced through Rattling Stick and starring Jack Whitehall, is a great example of what he can bring to the table. He has a wealth of experience across all elements of filmmaking and we’re excited to develop our relationship even further across his commercial work. As if having an absurd amount of monumental talent wasn't enough Gabe is also blessed with an encyclopedic knowledge of football making him a must have guest at most dinner parties.’
Gabe adds: ‘Every idea has a natural platform, whether it’s TV, Film or Online or something completely different. My passion is making it happen in the space it should and trying to deliver a film that's truly engaging'.’
