Director biography
John Hillcoat brings a visceral cinematic approach and deep understanding of human emotion to his filmmaking. Whether through the provocative brutality of his feature films, including The Road, Lawless and Triple 9, or the captivating intimacy of his music videos and advertising campaigns for world-renowned brands, such as Apple, BMW, Toyota and Samsung, his work always captures his unflinching realism. As one of the most prominently awarded commercial directors of the past decade, Hillcoat’s brand work for Levi’s, Apple, Samsung, VW, Coca Cola, and Guinness has collected every major advertising award, including top honors at the Cannes Lion Festival, AICP, ANDY, and ADC Awards, Clio and One Show Awards
