Toby Meakins


I’m an award-winning London based director with a diverse body of work and a strong visual style.

Over the last decade I’ve directed numerous brand films for a broad range of blue chip companies throughout the world such as British Airways, HSBC, NBC, Rolls Royce and Qatar Foundation, so I’m well versed in managing the intricacies and cultural sensitivities of complex and often large scale productions.

Viral work includes the Nat West/Rachel Riley Money Quiz Campaign (M&C Saatchi – over 3.5 million views), The highly successful Warburton’s Seeds Of Love Campaign as well as the multi award winning drama for Deloitte – Cyber Crime Evolved.

My drama work includes the multi award winning films LOT254 and BREATHE; both are Vimeo Staff Picks and have played at over 100 international festivals. I’ve had films funded by Film London, the Film Council and directed the pilot episode for the children’s fantasy series Fables of Forgotten Things starring Paul McGann (BBC TX2010).

Writing credits include the feature script, Breathe, a ghost story that was developed with the support of UK FILM COUNCIL/SCREEN SOUTH; I’m also attached to direct an adaptation of the classic MR James ghost story, The Haunted Dolls House, which has been developed with TIGER ASPECT and the BBC.

I pride myself on being a client friendly director who takes great pleasure in working as part of a team to make excellent films with a strong emotional emphasis.

I’m represented in the US by Adam Marshall at Management 360, and in the UK by Sam&Nish at Curtis Brown.
