London | Manchester

Chris Gaffey tells stories on screens. Often whoppers.

His own story began when he lost an eye in an accident. He survived the same school as Danny Boyle and after studying design and photography began his career storyboarding commercials in 1987. Following 15 years as an award-wining Creative, Chris slipped into the director’s chair in 2003 and has continued his craft there since, creating over 200 films for UK and international brands.

Chris has shot in five continents and his clients have included Adidas, Sony PlayStation, Samsung and FC Barcelona. His polished work across broadcast and online often combines live action with CG animation and VFX. Skilled in drama, comedy and fashion Chris has a particular passion for sport where he has the ability to win the trust of professional athletes and untrained actors to achieve confident performances on camera.

Chris takes pride in what he creates and finds no joy in anything done half-hearted. If you’re looking for a experienced director who will bleed for your cause, and still make the experience thoroughly enjoyable, Chris Gaffey is your man.
