Born into a family of filmmakers and spending most of his childhood on set, Seale spoke the language of cinema before any other. Passionate about dramatic storytelling, he handles epic visuals and intense action with the same ease as the complex emotions of actors and the subtle art of building stories through images. Derin has directed high profile international commercial campaigns next to his extensive Hollywood experience, directing sequences for The Talented Mr Ripley and Cold Mountain. A self confessed escapist, he describes himself as being “most inspired by classically dramatic but visually imaginative stories.”
The Bobbsey's won’t beat you over the head with gags, they’d prefer to do that with physical objects. Tim and Freddy are the kind of creative force that fly in and make it all seem easy - but underneath all that absurd, punchy humor is a feverish directorial talent with a strong, stripped back aesthetic that leaves you wanting more.
