HBG is an award-winning writer and director whose work often touches on social issues, making you laugh or question the norm. She kickstarted her career with an ADCAN* Award in 2018 for her first ever ad – a spot for US charity Ashoka. Since then, she’s worked with artists from Polydor, Sony and AWAL and her films have been featured on NOWNESS, Nylon, Alhurra, Spindle, The Evening Standard and Funny or Die, as well as having been screened by the BFI and other international festivals.
With a background in comedy and journalism, she’s brilliant with people in front and behind camera and a natural at getting the best out of talent – regardless of experience or background. She’s gone on to write with – as well as direct – Katherine Ryan, and has worked with other household names like Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Awkwafina, and Munroe Bergdorf, among others, and brands such as GLAMOUR, The British Army, Bodyform, and Sports Direct.
HBG is interested in pushing the boundaries of sound as much as visuals when it comes to telling an indelible story across any genre or format and is constantly writing and developing a number of her own short- and long-form projects across comedy, drama, stylised documentary and art with a focus on female empowerment, family and mental health.
