Nice Shirt’s newest signing has an unflinching, realistic style.

The latest director to sign to Nice Shirt Films has had a short but impressive career so far. Unsure of what he wanted to be when he grew up (who is?), Olly Goodrum studied Multimedia production at Nottingham Trent University. In between studying he watched a lot of movies and worked for the Fire Brigade, a job that involved looking at pictures of fatal road traffic accidents and house fires.

For his graduation piece he made a music video – Consequences of the Kill by Casually Sunshine – and it did very well for him, winning in the 2011 Lovie awards and earning five official selections at international film festivals.

Deciding he wanted to become an editor he took a master’s degree in Audio and Visual Production, but he soon started to become dissatisfied with the footage he was cutting. He started shooting his own footage to practice his editing and ended up making a short film in the process.

His second short film, This Is Vanity, was an unflinching drama about a single mother struggling to protect her disabled daughter. The film was shortlisted for BAFTA 2014, BIFA 2013, was broadcast on Channel 4 and 4OD, picked up three awards, six nominations, 16 official festival selections and a Vimeo staff pick.

After further honing his craft on a few commercials and music videos, he’s signed to Nice Shirt films to take his career up a notch. Hopefully we’ll see much more of him soon.
