Luke Bradford

writer & director

Powerful stories soften the hardest of hearts – this is what continues to motivate me.

My mission is to collaborate with the best talent in the world, creating stories that entertain, stir debate and ultimately stimulate positive action.

I have filmed in over 30 countries, worked with diverse cultures and witnessed some extremes of life. These experiences and a passion for social awareness have shaped my storytelling – bold, surprising narratives that leave audiences thinking and wanting more.

In July 2019 I directed the 2nd unit for ‘Marcella’ series 3 starring Anna Friel. I was given 35 scenes with lead cast across 5 episodes, now available globally on Netflix and on ITV Autumn 2020 in the UK.

I have written and directed a selection of short films that continue to screen at international film festivals. In 2019, two of my short film scripts won production support and funding including ‘Challenge TRINITY’ by ARRI and Directors UK.

I won ‘The Pitch’ competition at Pinewood Studios, which awarded me £40,000 to produce my film ‘White Gold’ in South Africa. The film highlights the ongoing persecution of people with albinism across Africa and qualifies for Oscar 2021 consideration, after winning Best Narrative Short at Pan African Film Festival in LA. My first feature script on the same subject has been optioned by Reel Issues Films and is currently in development.
