About me
Henry has a penchant for the in-between moments, the often overlooked details that make a life rich and wonderful. His work has a global appeal, after living in Paris and Las Vegas and returning to his native London. He combines emotional vulnerability with outside-the-box concepts — his work exists in its own universe while being grounded in the organic stories he uncovers within the characters and places he studies. He's not one to shy away from big ideas, crafting them into beautifully intricate work with strong narratives and a striking aesthetic. Henry’s hustle across the music and culture sectors has led to him having a unique and varied portfolio of both still and moving image work. His sharp sense of humour and stylish sensibilities have led to him carving out a sought-after niche in the commercial space. He loves doing things differently and bringing a human element to the extraordinary. If you want to stand out, you want Henry on your side.

  • MJ Cole Presents MADRUGADA
    MJ Cole Presents MADRUGADA‘Madrugada’ is a film about serenity, a peek into the solitary magic of night turning into morning. As MJ Cole’s musical offering moves out of the club and into other spaces, we wanted to make a film that did the same thing. We wanted to show that at this forgotten hour, there’s more on offer than emptying dancefloors. This madrugada period turns the world around us into a playground of opportunity. We love, we nurture, we play, we work - we live our lives in a way that is unique to this time.
