JAMIE MUIR FINDS HIS FOREVER HOME.
23 September 2015

Young - but accomplished - director Jamie Muir has joined Forever Pictures for representation in the UK. He may only be 25 but already he's notched up a formidable number of air miles shooting films for global brands ranging from Chevrolet to Telefonica and more. You can see why he's in demand as soon as you check out his showreel...


I'm intrigued now. How can someone that young have achieved so much? Indeed. Is is rather impressive isn't it? Take a look at this spot for Chevrolet - Muir has a gift for quiet observation that normally comes with many years of experience.




You're not wrong. What does Forever have to say about him? "Jamie has a clear eye for beauty and his spots feature the intimate stories of people front and centre: whether a fleeting romance, a soulful reminiscence of glories past or the sheer joy of escaping into the country for a night-time swim."

Those qualities are in ample evidence in his lovely branded content film for Cornetto.




Jamie has a clear eye for beauty and... the sought-after ability to tell succinct stories.

 ”


He certainly has a very assured approach. That comes through loud and clear - as Forever go on to say: "Above all, Jamie has the sought-after ability to tell succinct stories."

We'll leave you with a film for Shimano that demonstrates this beautifully. Filmed at Fort William, it focuses on a cyclist braving the downhill mountain bike course after an eleven year break; and in just a couple of minutes you feel you've come to understand what draws him back.



If you want to see more, take a look at Jamie Muir's showreel and then give Sasha Nixon at Forever Pictures a call on 020 3371 0669.
