Painting, photography, film… is there anything he can’t do? Morris learned by doing, shooting short films and promos whenever he could. He flitted between directing and DP duties while absorbing sage advice from industry veterans - so by the time he switched to cinematography full time, he had a tidy body of work.
Let’s see what Morris can do, then. First, let’s check out ‘Haze’ by Amber Run. The promo’s stylised aesthetic provided lots to keep Morris busy, but he ensured the flowing visuals remained cohesive.
Any tough shoots so far? Well, Morris endured a spooky trip into the woods for John Cooper Clarke. The poet’s collaboration with Hugh Cornwell (a cover of John Leyton's 'Johnny Remember Me') required a suitably foreboding promo. Morris helped ensure this misty lament looked the part.
Vision will be hoping there’s more where that came from. The signing reaffirms Vision’s commitment to nurturing up-and-coming talent. Primed for TVCs, promos, and short film work, Morris is a name to look out for.
