Bio

Huse Monfaradi

Huse is a Bahraini-born London-based multilingual director who began his career in television, directing shows at MTV in the early 2000s. He didn’t study film or media - and has a random degree in Spanish - but from as early as he can remember he has loved film and television. He is one of those kids that knew all the words to Star Wars.

In 2004 Huse moved over from television to music videos and commercials, directing videos for artists including Arctic Monkeys - “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor” and “Brianstorm”, the latter of which being entered in 2018 into the BFI’s Film Archive as one of the most significant British music videos of all time. He also directed the infamous video for Eric Prydz's “Call On Me”. Yeah, I know…

Other high-profile work has been music videos for Paolo Nutini’s “Iron Sky” as well as working with Michael Kiwanuka on his music video for “Love & Hate” and a live film to promote his album “Kiwanuka”.Other live work over the years has included concert films for artists ranging from Paul McCartney to Sleaford Mods. Oh, he doesn't really tell many people this but he also directed a feature documentary that screened globally with David Guetta for Coca Cola where he got to hang out with Snoop Dogg and travel the world for six months. 

He has also directed a number of self-funded documentary shorts, including “A Life Like Water”, a film about his 80-year-old immigrant father, showcased by Nowness and Vimeo. In November 2020, his first dramatic short “Brothers”, which he also wrote, was released with the unprecedented support of Studiocanal UK and the mental health charity CALM. He is currently developing two more shorts. 

He loves what he does. He has seen things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. ‘All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain’.
