My name is Ian Watt,
and I want to be a good human.
Inspired by experiences with nature and travel, the work of director Ian Watt is deeply explorative; questioning truth and questioning beauty. With roots in international humanitarian documentary, his global fluency grants him a unique perspective on the greater human story. Ian’s work largely explores the connection between the human journey and its relationship with physical space. Often placing equal emphasis on character and surrounding environment, his films examine what it means to truly be; not only to merely exist, but to engage, reflect, and respond to the world around us.
With a body of work for clients including Apple, Google, Facebook, TUMI, WeTransfer, Uniqlo, WSJ, Nike, and YouTube, his recent work has been recognized by Cannes, Clio, Communication Arts, D&AD, ADC, ADDY, One Show, FWA, Awwwards, and Vimeo Staff Picks.
Ian is based in Los Angeles.
