Phil Sansom and Olly Williams combined forces in 2003 under the Bowie inspired name, Diamond Dogs. They quickly established themselves as a versatile, dynamic directing duo working in a variety of mediums, from animation to live action. Their work combines both a wit and real style, with an emphasis on clever art direction and design. The pair have directed promos for, amongst others, The Enemy, Maximo Park, The Hoosiers, Tiny Dancers and The Cribs.
They won the Virgin Media Shorts award for their film The Black Hole, and have since gone on to direct several other successful shorts.
Their commercial work has included work for Nokia, The Observer and campaigns for clothing site Very.co.uk.
