Director/Writer

Alex Richardson is a director with a flair for getting great performances from actors and making beautiful films from tiny budgets. His previous work as both a director and cameraman has screened internationally, bringing him to the attention of BBC and Channel 4 talent scouts.

Alex trained on the Royal Court Theatre’s world famous Young Writer’s Programme and has since worked around the world – from documentaries in developing countries, to commercials for household name brands. Alex’s most recent work includes a segment of Pepsi’s World Cup commercial (to be released during the tournament this summer), and a series of high-profile promos for the sports tournament ‘Glory’, screened on Spike TV in the U.S.

Alex’s showreels can be seen here.

Cast

Joe Newton is an actor on the brink of BIG things. He most recently took the lead role in the Edinburgh Festival hit ‘Captain Morgan and the Sands of Time’, which garnered a string of 5-Star reviews, was nominated for the prestigious DAVE (TV network) comedy festival award, and featured on BBC Radio. With rugged good looks and enormous screen presence, the future looks bright for Joe.

Jerome Thompson trained at the prestigious LAMDA drama school and is swiftly building a name for himself with a series of lead roles and scene-stealers over the past year at theatres throughout London – including The Rose on Bankside, The Tobacco Factory, The Drayton and The New Diorama. This young actor’s star is in the ascendant and 2014 promises to be a breakthrough year.

Creative Team

DON’T. STOP. RUNNING’s potential has attracted a series of talented creatives. Heading up our marketing and design team, we have award-winning Creative Director Andrew Olley – whose work includes the promotion of brand identities for clients like Disney, ESPN and Virgin Media, and title sequences and poster designs for a series of low-budget British hits, like the recent Tower Block.

The film has also secured composer Midnight Heir (recently touring as part of superstar DJ Alesso’s team) and editor Tobias Zaldua (whose work spans over 200 high-profile promos and documentaries).
