Wondros Signs Internationally Acclaimed Director Henry Littlechild To Its Expanding Roster Of Talent
With the unparalleled direction of Wondros’ new Executive Producer of Commercials Sophie Gold, Wondros continues to expand its robust roster of talent with the signing of Director Henry Littlechild. With a wealth of international experience, Littlechild joins an impressive collective at Wondros that includes: Gerald McMorrow, Antoine Fuqua, Jesse Dylan, Dennie Gordon, Riess|Hill, Ellis Bahl, Jeff Yeats and recently signed Sean Thonson.
“We're excited to welcome Henry to the Wondros family,” Gold shares. “His style encapsulates intelligently crafted, creative comedy performance, which crosses live-action, VFX, animation, puppetry, and CGI.”
London-bred Henry Littlechild discovered his passion for the arts early on, studying film and photography at a local art school before catapulting into the realm of directing through acclaimed advertising agency Leagas Delaney. Littlechild made several films for the agency as an integral part of creative new business pitches, which then lead to directing full-time at London’s The Viral Factory. Known for pioneering the art of viral marketing, the company was the perfect nurturing ground for Littlechild, where he directed several high-profile projects including a content series for Ford Ka, seen by over 30 million people online and winner of multiple awards including a Silver BTAA and Young Guns Bronze.
Littlechild worked with multiple European agencies over the years including AMVBBDO, Fallon, Leo Burnett, MullenLowe, Grey, Ogilvy, and TBWA. Through his widespread experiences, he was celebrated for his unique approach to storytelling with three Silver Lions awards at Cannes and One Show Gold for his Ford Fiesta SP campaign, to name just a few. Littlechild’s CGI project for Smyths toys was revered for expanding consciousness and outdated gender norms with a young boy dressed as princess, now with over 10 million hits on YouTube.
“Some things are meant to be and as soon as I spoke to Sophie, she had me hooked on her vision for Wondros,” says Littlechild. “After concentrating on Europe for the last few years I cannot wait to get started in the US.”
