Director Tom Dream has signed to the Ridley Scott Creative Group’s RSA Films for commercial representation in the UK and Europe.

Dream, who is already signed to the Group’s Black Dog Films for music video, documentary, and content production, recently picked up numerous awards for his campaign with Gucci x Northface.

Bridging the gap between fashion, editorial, and advertising, the Gucci campaign introduced Dream as an exciting talent in commercial direction. The film became a viral sensation, leveraging TikTok Trainspotter Francis Bourgeois to engage a young culturally astute Gen Z audience, winning two Webby Awards, and awards at D &AD, Berlin’s Fashion Film and Commercial Festivals, the Creative Circle, and Kinsale Sharks.

Style-nostalgia, nature, and psychology are recurring themes that feature strongly in Dream’s work. A passionate collaborator with brands, crew, and talent, Dream creates truly original films, blurring the line between reality
and fantasy, capturing stories as they unfold, and unpicking human dynamics.

Recently, Dream’s short Shy Radicals premiered via Nowness after a run on the short film festival circuit. The film, a portrait of award-winning artist, activist, and author Hamja Ahsan also featured Dream's regular collaborators Arlo Parks and Art School Girlfriend and led to Dream creating a music video for Arlo’s cover of Radiohead’s Creep, a song which features prominently in the short.

Dreams most recent commercial with agency Heimat Berlin for German hardware store HORNBACH, capitalised on his documentary aesthetic, with creatives around the world upcycling the iconic HORNBACH store signs.

“Tom is an extraordinary young talent. It’s been an inspiration to see his development as a director, his award-winning work with Black Dog, and now signing for commercial representation with RSA. We’re really looking forward to the next chapter.” adds Kai Hsiung, Global MD, RSA Films.

“I feel honoured and excited to be joining the RSA roster alongside so many directors I admire. I’m grateful for the opportunity to make commercials with such an iconic company, whilst also continuing my career in documentary film making,” said Dream. 

“I hope to collaborate with new artists and crew and look forward to meeting agency creatives and brands that want to make weird fashion films and unique commercials. I will also continue supporting young people that want to get into the industry and will keep this at the heart of my process as I begin this next stage in my career.”
