Austen Humphreys is a man of unbelievable stories. Quite literally. His proudest moments include playing bowls for England, meeting the Queen, and surviving a shootout in a Brazilian favela (one of those is a lie). He cut his teeth in post-production at the Mill; immersing himself in the dark arts of post-production whilst working alongside directors as a VFX Supervisor. Through his work, Austen found he wanted to understand the industry from another side, and made the leap over to Rattling Stick. His first commercial was for Swatch Watches, which he describes as being “a vomit-inducing rollercoaster ride, whilst laughing my head off in equal measure” – a feeling he still gets to this day. His inaugural project very swiftly led to more work for Swatch, followed by TFL, News International, Sky, Nokia, Nike, Suzuki and most recently eMoov, Smooth Radio & Betstars.
