Garth Davis’s commercials are some of the most memorable and awarded. His experience encompasses many international and local productions and his work has been recognised in every major award show around the world.  In 2008, his Schweppes ‘Burst’ spot won a prized Gold Lion at Cannes, and in 2010 he received a finalist nomination in DGA (Directors Guild of America) for best commercials director.

His obsessive commitment, cinematic sensibilities and his deep appreciation of the actor-director relationship are his trademark.

Garth’s drama experience has led him to be involved with the highly awarded LOVE MY WAY series, and his short film ALICE took the Dendy Award of that year.

In 2012 Garth co-directed a chilling six hour mini series with Jane Campion (The Piano) titled TOP OF THE LAKE. The series was produced by Academy Award® winners Emile Sherman and Iain Canning (The King’s Speech, Shame) of See-Saw Films, and Philippa Campbell (Black Sheep) of Escapade Pictures, and co-produced by BBC2 and Sundance Channel. The story is set in the remote mountains of New Zealand, and follows the disappearance of a five months pregnant 15-year-old who was last seen standing chest deep in a frozen lake.

Garth is represented by Exit Films in Australasia, Reset Content in the U.S. and Academy Films in the U.K.
