SMART PEOPLE is his Noam Murro's first directorial feature.
Murro is a multi-award winning commercials director. He has been nominated for DGA Director of the Year five times, winning the honor in 2005. His unique style was established in 1994 with a memorable campaign that captured elderly customers in Katzs famous deli on New York Citys Lower East Side. This led to documentary-style exposs of tobacco monsters for the California Dept. of Health as well as lighter work for Fox Sports.
In 2001, Murros work embraced the taboo subject of death. The poignant Flatline spot for Toshiba, in which a dying mans life flashes before him, was singled out and applauded by the New York Times.
In 2002, he directed Saturns Sheet Metal, a conceptually driven spot that was highly critically acclaimed. In 2003, Adcritic.com labeled his Got Milk Birthday as the best spot of the year. Birthday went on to become the winner of a Gold Lion at the 2003 Cannes Lions awards. Murros campaign for Olympus garnered him a second Gold Lion at the 2005 awards along with a number of Silver and Bronze statues for other commercials. Recently, Creativity Magazine named him as one of the industrys 50 most influential people in the last 20 years. He was also recently named the UKs #1 director by Campaign magazine.
As well as directing, he is also the successful founder of Biscuit Filmworks, one of the most
competitive and interesting production companies in the industry.
