After directing documentaries for the UK’s BBC and Channel 4, Andy Lambert moved into fiction, making two award-winning short comedy films. He then broke into advertising, carving a name for himself as a director of stylish, witty commercials often with big, cinematic production values.
His ability to embrace film genres and iconic references to humorous effect has created a reputation for slick and well-crafted commercials for top brands such as MasterCard , Nike, Guinness, The National Lottery, Three and Honda. His Chitty Chitty Bang Bang recreation for the UK’s Road Tax Office and his zombie homage for The Samaritans are all regarded as the benchmark for pastiche advertising and are a testament to his love of movies.
His funny and riotous soccer spot for The Sun newspaper promoting their 2018 World Cup coverage has won several awards including the Gold Sportel Awards for the best piece of sports advertising in 2018 as well as being viewed over 7 million times on the internet.
