DARYL CHASE JOINS TOMBOY FILMS.

Filmmaker Daryl Chase has signed with Tomboy Films for commercial representation.

A former Burberry creative and director, Chase spearheaded many of the fashion house’s recent ad campaigns. Combined with his experience as a cinematographer, editor, and pretty much any creative aspect you’d care to mention, Chase slots well into Tomboy’s multitalented roster.


Burberry, eh? He must have worked with some big names. He’s directed his fair share. Elton John, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Romeo Beckham… Burberry wrangled all of them for their 2015 Christmas ad. Paying homage to Billy Elliot’s opening scene, Chase delivered a star-studded trampoline session.




So what’s prompted Chase’s career move? While Burberry afforded him a glamorous nine-to-five, Chase is keen to pursue more commercial and dramatic projects - beginning with William Shakespeare’s 'Macbeth'.


We have admired [Daryl’s] high-profile campaigns over the last few years and look forward to sharing his immense creative talent with other ambitious brands.

Shot in Northampton, Chase’s contemporary adaptation draws from local talent and an urban aesthetic. As well as honing his directing skills, Chase hopes the film encourages younger audiences to enjoy the Bard.




A noble aim. And what do Tomboy have planned for their new man? Tomboy Managing Director Glynis Murray says: "We are delighted to have Daryl join our director team. We have admired his high-profile campaigns over the last few years and look forward to sharing his immense creative talent with other ambitious brands."


And Chase is confident? Oh yes. “I’m really excited about working with Tomboy Films in commercials and content and feel my skill set and experience is perfectly suited to creating powerful brand imagery and storytelling for their clients.”

Daryl Chase’s showreel is available here. For more on Tomboy’s latest signing, speak to Glynis Murray on 020 8962 3456 or via email at glynis@tomboyfilms.co.uk.
