RATTLING STICK UNVEIL OWEN TREVOR.
20 November 2020

Australian director Owen Trevor has emerged from lockdown as a member of Rattling Stickís UK commercial roster.

Despite the demands of remote pitches and homeschooling three young children, Trevor remains upbeat about life in the director's chair. And joining Rattling Stick satisfies a long-held desire for the Aussie.


"I only joined Rattling Stick so I could meet Daniel Kleinman," Trevor jokes. "He's partially to blame for me even being in this industry. As a young film student I saw the iconic John West spot and then the Peter Kay series for John Smith... and a dream was born. So the guy has something to answer for!"


Owen is a multi-award winning director with a comedic flare and technical brilliance that really sets him apart from the pack.

 ”

"In all seriousness, itís a pleasure to join such a fine group of filmmakers in him, Johnnie, Stuart [Bentham], Ringan [Ledwidge] and the rest of the gang. As a group they have produced some of the finest pieces of advertising in history and it feels like thereís a shared sensibility in both our approach to film and the culture that surrounds a company."


Equally enthused is Rattling Stick co-founder and executive producer Johnnie Frankel, who says: "Owen is a multi-award winning director with a comedic flair and technical brilliance that really sets him apart from the pack. He is also a talented storyteller, which is something we cherish here at Rattling Stick. And, as if thatís not enough, heís also a bloody nice fella."
