Born in Newcastle, Martin Wedderburn graduated from the famous St Martin’s School of Art and began working as the principle clothing designer for Silas, one of London’s hippest labels. Some of his first commercial work for Scottish Screen went on to win two Gold Roses and four Silvers and the ‘Best Commercial over 30 seconds’ in the 1999 Scottish Drum awards. Martin Wedderburn’s exquisite visual sensibilities married to a wryly distinctive storytelling ability make Martin one of a very rare breed of young directors. And one of the busiest. He has a very broad range of styles and techniques within his repertoire, from slapstick comedy to elegantly crafted special effects. His pragmatic and easy going approach always gets the most from any project he’s involved with.
