Richard heeley : director


I am an extremely experienced director, with a track record that spans high end broadcast, corporate and commercial work.  I started my career in broadcast television directing on-air promotions.  Having won numerous awards for my work I became responsible for the team producing all the on-air promotions for BBC ONE, before being poached by ‘Top Gear’ to direct the re-launching show in 2002.  I stayed with the show for 7 series and was responsible for developing the highly stylized photography that has since so often been copied.  After ‘Top Gear’ I worked on a host of British and American television shows including ‘Holiday’, ‘What Not to Wear’, ‘Jo Frost’, ‘Biggest Loser’, ‘Wheeler Dealers’ and ‘Fifth Gear’. I also directed corporate films for Williams F1, Aston-Martin, Barclays, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin and Rolls-Royce.

Recently I have directed my first feature length documentary, ‘One More Win’, which tells the story of off-road racing legend, Rod Hall, the only man to have raced every Baja 1000 since the race began in 1967.  Produced for American production company Blue Passport Productions, the film is about to be released.
