Bruce Hunt is a powerful visualist who captures both epic scenes and studied, nuanced moments. He began as an illustrator/designer for a leading animation effects company before moving into commercial directing. His feature film work began as the 2nd Unit Director on the Wachowskis' The Matrix and Alex Proyas’ Dark City.
Both films are known for advancing the craft of
special effects and Bruce was a key player in the progressive and stunning visuals that define those movies. He also worked as 2nd Unit Director in both Matrix sequels and Baz Luhrman's Australia. His directorial debut The Cave was released in 2005.
His client list includes Visa, Toyota, Lexus, Nintendo, Volkswagen, Panasonic, Hyundai, Subaru, Acura, and Samsung, among others.
He has been named Director of the Year four times in Australia for his spot work. Bruce was recently nominated for an Australian Directors Guild Award, and his work for Transport Accident Commission was shortlisted for Visual Effects at the 2012 Cannes Lions.
