An award-winning director of mixed-media commercials and short films, Osbert Parker is perhaps best-known for his signature style of using cut-out animation mixed with live elements to create one-of-a-kind imaginary landscapes.
For the past three years Parker has been experimenting and crafting two short films that are receiving great acclaim on the film festival circuit. “Film Noir” was nominated for best short animated film by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 2006 and also was nominated for the Palm d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. It was included at the Telluride Film Festival as well.
His newest short film, “Yours Truly,” won best animated film at the recent Aspen Short Film Festival. It is in contention for many of the upcoming 2007 film festivals.
Parker’s commercial credits include such clients as Coca-Cola, Nike, Budweiser and the World Wildlife Fund.
He is currently creating the third short film in his “Noir” trilogy.
