about giles ripley

In his graduation year at Chelsea, Giles exhibited at New Contemporaries and featured on BBC2’s School Of Saatchi....only to be told by Tracey Emin that his work wasn’t art!

She had a point and he quickly transitioned to filmmaking, winning several public funds to direct shorts having developed a passion for telling daft stories about loveable losers.

His shorts have been recognised by numerous international festivals including Palm Springs, Encounters, Raindance and LSFF and he is now developing his debut feature.

In tandem with his narrative work, Giles’ keen eye for character driven comedy storytelling has seen him direct numerous commercials for many of the world’s biggest agencies for McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, Doritos, Mentos, Amazon, Samsung and 3 Mobile to name a few.
