Billy Boyd Cape

Billy started his career while still at Bournemouth Film School; he began directing music videos which garnered millions of views and produced feature-doc ‘Beyond Clueless’ which premiered at SXSW (and later landed on Netflix and Mubi). His graduation short film 'More Hate Than Fear' was nominated for awards at Camerimage and the Royal Television Society.

In 2018 Billy directed 'Reach', an award winning short for Channel 4 Random Acts, and 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' for Pride in London. Pride won a D&AD Yellow Pencil and New Director Awards at the British Arrows, Kinsale and Ciclope Festivals, plus inclusion at the Saatchi Showcase in Cannes. Billy was also selected by Campaign Magazine as one of the Top 10 Directors of 2018 in its end of year issue.

Since then Billy has directed multi-award winning work for the likes of Nike, ITV, Co-op, NHS and Cadbury, cementing him as one of the most sought after new names in advertising.

Billy’s recent short film ‘Wings’ is currently being entered into festivals around the world. Please get in touch for a private link.
