bio

 

Giles Borg has more than twenty years of experience in film and television, directing music videos, commercials, TV programmes and feature-length movies. Originally trained as a sculptor, Giles started his career in the music business making videos and documentaries for various bands. At the same time he started making commercials and TV shows, while also building up a catalogue of short films. Confident with either comedy or drama, and usually scripting his own pieces, he was soon in demand, working with international brands such as Samsung, Hewlett Packard and PlayStation.

 

However it was narrative cinema that always interested Giles. The shorts began to get a lot of attention on the festival circuit and soon Giles was asked to move into feature films. Always writing - he has over a dozen feature scripts to his name - Giles chose a story that mirrored his early days playing gigs to be his first feature. 1234, the story of a small indie band falling in and out of love with fame, was nominated as Best Film at the London Film Festival and was released theatrically by Soda Pictures. After 1234 he was hired to direct his second film, Flutter, a darkly comedic tale about gamblers and risk, starring Luke Evans, Mark Williams, Joe Anderson, Billy Zane and Laura Fraser.

He has a number of productions in development including a number of feature projects and long form TV dramas and is represented by Maththew Dench at Dench Arnold.
 

 

Giles lives in London and, when not making films, he plays the piano, badly.
