Baillie Walsh combines dramatic precision and technical craftsmanship across commercials, music videos, documentaries, and feature films.

He has created films for the likes of Levis, Sony, Huawei, Citroën, Versace, Hugo Boss, Cartier, YSL, and Thierry Mugler; with stars including Eva Mendes, Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson, and Anne Hathaway. And music videos for artists as diverse as Oasis, Kylie Minogue, New Order, INXS, and Spiritualized.

Other notable works include the hologram installation of Kate Moss for designer Alexander McQueen, Massive Attack’s seminal ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ video, and 2018’s ‘Malaria Must Die So Millions Can Live’ – the charity film, starring David Beckham, reached over 1.3 billion people.

Baillie made his dramatic feature-film debut with ‘Flashbacks of a Fool’, starring Daniel Craig and Felicity Jones, which he wrote and directed. He has since directed the ground-breaking crowd-sourced fan documentary ‘Springsteen & I’. Assembled from over 300 hours of footage submitted by roughly 2,000 contributors, the film screened simultaneously on 2000 screens in over 50 countries to widespread critical acclaim.
