HARVEY EATON SIGNS FOR JOHNNY FOREIGNER.
7 February 2023

Johnny Foreigner's recruitment drive continues with the arrival of British-Canadian director Harvey Eaton, whose decision to leave university after two years has paid off in spades. He wanted hands-on experience, so he went out and grabbed it.

Like many of his contemporaries, Eaton made skate videos as a teenager, so he knew his way around a camera. Keen to improve his storytelling skills, he became an editor as well. Many scripts, dailies, and cuts later, Eaton has grown into a confident, well-rounded director who knows what he wants.


"Johnny Foreigner represents some top notch talent and I felt the time was right for me to expand and see what exciting commercial scripts are out there," Eaton says, with high-profile ads for Carrefour, Heinz, Linksys, etc. to build on. Producer Olivia Hirschberg is confident about his prospects.


Harvey is a genius at capturing the little slices of life, which is such an in-demand skill.

 ”

"I could immediately see the spark in Harvey's reel. He has a really playful style no matter whether the product being sold is serious and that's very engaging." Partner in crime Karen James agrees: "Harvey is a genius at capturing the little slices of life, which is such an in-demand skill. He's also adept at mixed media which we see in so many projects right now."
