David Clews was awarded a prestigious BAFTA Television Craft Award for his outstanding work directing the ob-doc series Educating Essex for Twofour, an award winning factual, features and entertainment television producer and digital agency, with offices in the UK, US and Abu Dhabi. The ground breaking production included a fixed rig of 65 cameras to show what really happens behind the school gates. David is now Twofour’s Head of Documentaries, overseeing the company’s output for major UK and international broadcasters.
His credits include the critically acclaimed Surviving Gazza, Boys from the Brown Stuff, and the BAFTA and Grierson nominated series The Family. David has also won a foreign press association award for his Wonderland film The End of the World Bus Tour, which followed a group of evangelical Christians to Israel, and an RTS award for his first film, Teen Life.
