Brian Watson. Writer/Director/Author/Lyricist.

I worked in the Ad Industry for about a hundred years, I was Creative Director at one of the world's biggest International Ad Agencies. I then went on to run my own agency. Apparently I have a world record, I've made more TV commercials than anyone else in the world. More recently I have completed a spectacular stage musical with my Co-Writer, Composer David Smart. We are currently trying to get our stage show out there. It's looking like we may have a 'showcase' in New York early next year. You can view our musical, and listen to demos of 5 of the 14 original tracks here: I also had a book published at Christmas 2011: 'Black Jacks, Fruit Salads, Cricket Stumps On The Wall, a light-hearted look at growing up in post war London. I've written many songs, along with my composer David Smart. We wrote a song which tore apart the British justice system: 'We Do Nothing' sung by a brilliant young singer called Rob Young. I wrote the lyrics in response to a newspaper article which reported the story of a beautiful young 13 year old girl. The girl was bricked in the face by a thug, and while she underwent many, many operations to re-build her face, the thug taunted her. The British judge gave the thug a £200 fine and two years to pay! You can view the song her on Youtube: I am currently trying to get a Christmas song 'out there'. I wrote this song in response to another newspaper article. This time a story which stated that the politically correct still want Christian countries to tone down Christmas, for fear of it offending other religions. My song just says that Christmas as we know it will always be around. 'There'll Always Be Christmas' sings up Christmas in the nicest possible way. Hear it here on our Soundcloud: I'm now two chapters in to a new book, a novel called 'Friends In High Places'. A bit of a RomCom. I don't intend to retire, not until they screw down the lid. Get in touch if you feel we could mutually benefit each other. Or just to say hello. Kindest Regards, Brian Watson. Writer/Director/Author/Lyricist at WATSONTELLY LTD.

Hello from Toronto Canada. I make films for The Reading Salon about queer artists, gender and sexuality. Most are posted online and a few have been screened at local and international festivals/screenings. I'm currently working on two films about bullying, one from the perspective of a prominent Toronto trans women and the other is about a New York club legend. I love to use video to tell queer stories and I'm hoping that Stage 32 can help me be a better story teller and connect me with other artists who might want to creatively partner on art films or docs.

I wonder whether you're familiar with Tony Kay's "tested For the Unexpected" Dunlop commercial? It is the finest ad I ever have worked on. Posted on youtube.

Brian Watson

I do remember that ad Yvette. I remember it very well. Brilliantly shot. All the production values you would expect from Mr Kay. However it didn't do much for Dunlop!

Brian Watson

Raymond, I respect all you do. Good luck with your projects.

Amanda Toney

Wow Brian, is there anything you haven't done?! SO great to have you in this community and I wish you all the best :)

Brian Watson

Thank you kindly Shannon. I enjoy everything I do and have done. It's been, and still is the best fun you can have with your clothes on!
