DESTINATION DIRTY FOR SIMON LANE.
26 July 2021

Dirty Films have added quick-thinking director Simon Lane to their enterprising roster.

Lane brings a meaty showreel to the Shoreditch outfit, with music videos, commercials, and documentaries in his wheelhouse. Vimeo Staff Picks are not easy to achieve, and Lane gathers them for fun.

His latest adorns a 2020 documentary commissioned by the Angolan government, with Lane's tactile photography and empathetic outlook on full display.


Such work leads Dirty Films to say: "What makes Simon 'Dirty' isn't just his ear for tone or eye for detail, and it's not just the magnetic combination of closeness and scale - it's his passion for real people and dedication to the subjects of his carefully crafted collection of films. We know he'll fit right in."

While Lane prepares for his Dirty debut, check out this stripped-back promo for indie folk trio Daughter. Filmed in Peckham's Asylum Chapel, the piece earned Lane a UK Music Video Awards nomination for its hallowed, intimate atmopshere.


You can watch more of Simon Lane's work here. For more information, ring Dirty Films EP Angelica Riccardi on 07879 133 058 or email angelica@dirtyfilms.uk.
