Toby Morris's film career began at his local cinema where he cleaned the popcorn machines. This earned him enough money to make his debut feature at sixteen, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Many well-received commercials and short films later, the Australian has joined Curate for UK representation. Dan Dickenson and Madeleine Sanderson always have a keen eye for new talent, with Morris the latest to tick all the boxes. So what drew Curate to the Sydney-based director?
For starters, his reel is chock full of ads which draw the eye and tickle the funny bone. High-profile brands like TikTok, Toyota, and Menulog (down under's version of Just Eat) have all benefited from Morris's light touch over the years—now it's the UK market's turn.
Before his Curate debut hits screens, check out this experimental short film that adds a new mode of transport to the Space Race. Released in 2020, 'Space: A Skate Odyssey' won a Vimeo Staff Pick award for its blend of archive footage, contemporary craft, and 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater' vibes.
