Director Rhys Day joins Visceral Films

Rhys-&-Skip- (1).jpgRenowned video clip director, Rhys Day (right), has signed with Visceral Films in order to flex his creative muscles in the TV commercial/content arena.

Day is no stranger to the director's chair, having created clips for dozens of bands around Australia, including Aussie rockers 'Sticky Fingers' who's Gold Snafu clip has received a staggering 1,160,929 views.

Says Skip Waterhouse (above, left), Visceral head: "It's great to have Rhys on board. When I started Visceral several months ago, I wanted to create a roster of directors who wouldn't tread on each other's toes, and Rhys complements our current offering beautifully.
"When Octavia (Visceral producer) showed me his reel, I was blown away by his retro-filmic look combined with his wry sense of humour. Rhys isn't just a pretty pictures guy, he's a scriptwriter a storyteller and has an amazing eye for style and what's trending.

"I'm always surprised that music clip directors aren't embraced more often here in Australia. Overseas, creatives and production companies are more likely to see their potential - the likes of Spike Jonze and Jonathan Glazer and dozens of other amazing directors cut their teeth in music."

Day joins Visceral's impressive director offering including Adam Blaiklock, Graeme Burfoot, Eden Diebel, and James Holt.
