OSCAR HUDSON

Oscar grew up in London and first started directing and editing as a teenager, making skate videos. He has now directed music videos for Darwin Deez, Bonobo, Young Thug & Carnage ft Meek Mill, Radiohead, Young Fathers, which as marked by his desire to experiment and play with viewers' perspectives. He has also done commercial work for the likes of booking.com and Ikea and written and directed short films.

I was really interested in trying to tap into that hyperreal aesthetic.

OSCAR HUDSON

"I don't think is so much that I am interested in space instead of people. I think it's rather the space becomes a way into thinking about people."
