Simon Neal bio

Simon’s work is typified by inspired casting, effortless storytelling and performances that feel utterly authentic. It’s always beautiful to look at and often quite funny too. He began his career at the Beeb, where his trailers and channel idents garnered 5 Gold Promax awards and even made the cover of Time magazine in the U.S. From there he quickly progressed into commercials with an acclaimed PSA for Cancer Research UK, which won him a Gold BTAA for Best New Director and a Bronze Lion at Cannes.

Simon’s short film Washdays played at over 20 international film festivals. It was awarded Best Film at Rushes Soho Shorts, Special Jury prize at Austin and was nominated for a British Independent Film Award. ‘Doughnuts’, the film he made for ‘Coming Up’, Channel 4’s prestigious new talent showcase, premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and was subsequently broadcast on Channel 4. Time Out gave it four stars and it won Pick Of The Day in The Guardian, The Sun and Metro newspapers. Simon recently directed series 2 of the acclaimed comedy drama Youngers, again for Channel 4.  All eight episodes won Pick Of The Day in The Guardian and The Observer described the show as ‘Tender, topical, truthful. A gem’.
