Jamie Rafn read law and qualified as a barrister before turning his attention to his lifelong obsession – film. Rafn’s directorial debut Soho Square was released by The Sundance Channel and was followed by a series of short films including “She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not” which was featured in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase and “Tokyo Jim,” which was nominated for a European Film Award and London Film Festival TCM Prize.
Rafn found breakout commercial success with the acclaimed brand film “The Man Who Walked Around the World” for Johnnie Walker and BBH. The six-minute film achieved worldwide acclaim, earning a Gold Lion at Cannes for Internet Film, as well as awards from Epica, Mobius, and Kinsale Sharks.
Rafn has worked with some of the world’s leading brands, directing work for clients like Stella Artois, Nintendo, McDonald’s, Johnnie Walker, Toyota, and Disney. His work has been honoured at the top advertising award shows, including Cannes Lions, AICP, Ciclope, The One Show, The British Arrows and D&AD, among others.
A natural storyteller, Rafn has the knack for turning brilliantly observed scenarios into beautifully shot film-making with a unique, intelligent and beguiling use of humanity running through all he does.
