Director Brady Hood hails from Goole, Yorkshire – home to Britain’s Premier Inland Port. After coming to London to study film production he started his career in television before becoming assistant to directors such as Lone Scherfig, Otto Bathurst and legendary Brit, Joe Wright. It was under his instruction and encouragement that Brady began to write things he really cared about; emotive character driven stories with a deep level of social commentary.
In 2014 Brady was accepted onto the MA Directing Fiction Course at the National Film and Television School, where he was awarded the David Lean Scholarship. Since graduating in February 2016, Brady has signed with Independent Talent Agency and won ‘Best Director,’ at the Kodak/Namemi Student Commercial Awards. In September 2016 Brady’s graduation short “Sweet Maddie Stone” won the Brief Grand Prix award at Encounter’s Short Film and Animation Festival. His first feature film, an adaptation of the aforementioned short ‘Sweet Maddie Stone,’ has been picked up for development by Shoebox Films and Creative England.
With a penchant for light tragedy and playing with conventional narratives, Brady – who was 2nd Unit Director on Scherfig’s ‘The Riot Club’ – is currently developing two television programmes, Twockers with The Ink Factory and Davey Glass Disappears with Montebello/Maje. He will be working with Studio Sixty Billion on up-coming commercial projects.
