Director Mike Oldershaw has joined boutique film house electriclimefilms. Based in Australia and New Zealand, Oldershaw has a background in Theatre and Film.
He has worked on several major campaigns for brands such as Nestle, Dominion Breweries, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Frito-Lay, Cadbury, Fisher & Paykel, and AA Insurance.
Starting out as a runner, Oldershaw worked his way up to casting director before taking the leap into directing.
“I always wanted to act,” said Oldershaw.
“I studied it at university, but when I got out I realized you spend a lot of time not working as an actor. I eventually got a job as a runner for a big production company and that set me on the path.”
Drawing inspiration from films, videos, and TV, he has been directing stories for various media platforms, from traditional thirty-second TVC’s, to long format viral content, for about 13 years.
“The challenges that I like are the fact that every job is different,” said Oldershaw on the most challenging part of being a director. “This is why I like working in commercials so much.”
