Brett Foraker began his career as a painter and photographer before turning to filmmaking. His early years were spent developing the lauded brand identities of channels such as TCM, Film4 and E4.

In 2004 he was appointed the youngest-ever Creative Director of Channel 4 (UK) where he directed the multi-award winning C4 Idents and Faces of 4 campaigns.

Since then, he has been making adverts through Ridley Scott Associates where he has directed award-winning campaigns for Toyota, Sony, British Heart Foundation, and Syfy to name but a few. Among his many accolades are awards from Cannes Lion, Creative Circle, BTAA and the coveted Black Pencil from D&AD.

He was the guiding force behind the 4Creative, and has been on Campaign’s A-List several times. His work has appeared frequently in Creative Review, Boards, Shots and was featured in Saatchi’s Young Director’s Showcase in Cannes.

Drifter Pictures, a book of his photography, was published in late 2012.

He currently splits his time between London and Los Angeles where he is developing several feature film projects.
