From mime artist to theatre director to projectionist...and eventually director, Joe found his way Here on a distinctly unique path. Responsibility for projecting Coen Bros movies four times a day inevitably inspired a taste for poetic storytelling with a playful edge. His music videos and content films are richly imagined, contemplative & occasionally haunting. A lyrical, less is more approach that has already seen this emerging talent shortlisted at the Cannes, Soho Rushes festivals & nominated for Best Pop Video at the UKMVA's. As a result, he has rapidly caught the eye of agencies and recently helmed a stunning Singleton whisky commercial for adam&eve DDB, followed by a sublime Volvo spot for Grey London. Joe expertly captures the 'HERE and NOW' in his stills work too, some of which can be seen HERE. Definitely no average Joe!
Volvo // Grey London
Joe's newest film explores the human craft behind the creation of a new breed of Volvo. It is at once dramatic and delicate, beautifully shot, timeless and insightful... Joe is here - Where are you?
THE SINGLETON // ADAM&EVE DDB
It's not often you get briefed to 'break the mould', but Joe Connor recently helped do just that to the world of whisky advertising, with this sensorial journey of 'the water of life'.
COLDPLAY // EVERGLOW
A beautifully elegant example of Joe's sensitive aesthetic, Coldplay's latest video powerfully & poignantly expresses the pain of love lost.
MARINER'S CHILDREN // SYCAMORE (EXTRACT)
The wild landscape of a windswept Scottish isle provides the perfect setting for this stunningly shot story of loss & remembrance. Both epic and intimate at the same time, it has a poetic beauty that remains hypnotically engaging right to the end. Sensitively photographed & full of soul. A great example of Joe’s understated style.
VISIT LONDON // THIS CITY // BROOKLYN BROTHERS
Joe may be originally from Northern climes, but proving he’s now well & truly Here in the capital, this typically poetic homage to the Big Smoke projects a unique view of the city & its culture - literally!
GABRIELLE APLIN // SWEET NOTHING (EXTRACT)
Joe pulls off yet another visual feat with this epic one-shot promo for Gabrielle Aplin. Expertly synchronised, and cleverly choreographed, the best use of thirty drum-sets you’re ever likely to see. And we're proud to announce that it was nominated for Best Pop Video at the UK Music Video Awards!
