Frank Budgen(b.1954 d.2015)

    Frank cemented his reputation as one of the finest commercial directors in the business with ads such as “escape the sofa for Reebok” and “mountain” for Sony Playstation. As one of the industry’s most awarded directors he started as a copywriter at BBDO before moving to Saatchi & Saatchi and then BMP DDB Needham. He began directing commercials in 1985, starting with an ad for John Smiths before parting ways with the agency to go and work full time behind the camera, joining The Paul Weiland Film Company. Budgen then joined Gorgeous as a partner and cofounder in 1997.
