Bert&Bertie are a female co-directing duo with a penchant for moustaches and Fedora hats. Brought together by flock wallpaper, they were instantly united by a favourite quote: “Well behaved women seldom make history.” Theirs is a world of strangely beautiful magical realism constantly blurring the lines between reality and fantasy, crackling with dark comedy yet littered with delicately emotive performances. With combined backgrounds in dance, video games, design, commercials and photography, The Berties are an eclectic mix. Since entering the world of film, they have won both a BAFTA and BAFTA Nomination between them. In their commercial work they believe in using the best visual technique to interpret an idea, not the other way around. This versatility is clear throughout their work in their use of live-action, motion capture, stop frame, rotoscope, prosthetics and visual effects. The Berties like to remove boundaries to get their wild imaginations onto screen. Their passion for long form film is absorbed in all their commercials with a narrative edge and cinematic flourishes throughout.
