YDA Week 2021: Ninian Doff
Kicking off this year's YDA Week, director Ninian Doff discusses breaking into the industry, his directorial style, creative freedom and how he took advantage of a spare unicorn to make his first short film.
With Get Duked, his recently released, highly successful feature, plus promos for bands including Chemical Bros., Miike Snow and Run the Jewels, as well as high profile commercials, Ninian Doff is a director at the top of his game.
The Pulse Films director here talks about how he made his way into the industry, his approach to a project and how his style transfers across different mediums, and what it was like moving into the world of feature films.
