Joining the AIRBAG Sydney roster is Eddy Bell – an award-winning performance director.
Bell’s work has featured at the Sydney Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival, won Gold at Cannes Lions YDA, and has also won Best Director at the Dendy Awards and ADG. His commercial work features for major brands including Toyota, Volkswagen, KFC, OPSM, Bank SA, Yellow Pages, The Australian Government and The Australian Air Force.
Bell returns to commercial work after a year focussed on feature film/series work. He has four feature films in the pipeline with Flywheel Pictures, including a gritty, female led Neo-Western, and a true crime thriller set in the final hours of one of Australia’s most audacious prison breaks. Eddy received development funding for his 8-part, 30 minute comedy One of Us! and began early development on Blackwater, a new 6 part, mini series about government corruption and environmental profiteering.
Says Bell: “After a year of focus on long form, it’s great to go back to the comforting embrace of a commercial production company. AIRBAG has gone from strength to strength, and I’m excited to jump onboard.”
Says Alex Tizzard, EP, AIRBAG Sydney: “I’ve always been such a fan of Eddy’s work, such a talented director with a can-do attitude and great fun to hang out with too. I’m so pleased to have him as a part of the AIRBAG Team.”
