Biography


BIOGRAPHY

 

C. A. Wallace (his first name is Cosmo, if you’re curious), used his insatiable and lifelong passion for film-making as a driving force, propelling a stellar career trajectory that took him from an art-runner working for free on Belle & Sebastien music videos to an award-winning director, helming commercials for clients such as Microsoft, Samsung, Panasonic, Adidas and Vauxhall within the space of five years.

A true believer that art can work hand-in-hand with commerce, Wallace has written six feature scripts and made an award-winning mini-feature, ‘NSFW’, at the same time as directing more than 150 commercials projects across 4 continents: work that has won multiple Gold Awards, including the prestigious Chairman’s Prize at the Roses Awards in 2014.  Wallace frequently works with the same clients, agencies and creatives: in the last two years, more than 50% of his jobs have been from clients asking him back - not simply because of his ability to create phenomenal ads and to integrate seamlessly with other creative teams - but because his involvement clearly and frequently leads to better-than-expected returns on the advertising spend.

Wallace puts his faith in the transformational power and universal language of moving pictures, inspired in particular by  his love of silent and world cinema, and credits his success to a combination of inventiveness and technical knowledge, as well as the willpower, work ethic and wiliness borne from surviving and thriving in a business in which he had no formal training nor initially any industry connections.  

A committed writer, a part-time investor, and a nature-lover, Wallace lives with his beautiful wife Elisabeth and his terrible flat-coated retriever, Carlos the Dragon.
