Seb Edwards, Director, Academy Films
Seb Edwards
Job Grade
Academy Films


Seb had an early introduction to the film industry, starring in John Boorman’s ‘Hope & Glory’ at 8 years of age. On losing his boyish good looks he decided he was better suited behind the camera.

His strong cinematic approach to storytelling creates work that is visually striking and emotionally engaging.

Since joining Academy, Seb has almost exclusively created award winning work for clients like HTC, the COI, VW, Vodafone, Virgin Media, Luta and more recently for Adidas, the Red Cross, Nike and Barlcays. His Hovis film won awards at the British Arrows and his work for the COI led to 2 Gold Lions in Cannes, and recognition at several other shows that year.

Although he is one of Academy's busiest directors, Seb still found time to direct an award winning short film, 'Friday' in 2011. The film picked up 'official selection', nominations and wins at many of the major film festivals on the circuit.

Despite cementing his position as one of the UK’s top directors, Seb maintains that he is most proud of winning ‘Best Shot’ at the Academy clay pigeon shooting competition.
