Peter Truckel

Peter Truckel
For fifteen years Peter had his own London-based production company. He has subsequently developed ties with several production companies in different parts of the world, including Catapult Commercials in Johannesburg.
Still passionate about commercials after twenty years, Peter has filmed in China, Russia, North and South America, South Africa, Canada and Europe.
Peter’s work bridges the gap between performance/comedy and special effects. He often works with animals and children and has won many awards for his films, including Clio’s, The New York Festival, BTAA, D&AD, Creative Circle and a Cannes Silver Lion.

“I’m a huge fan of visual effects, and I love the craft of filmmaking, but for me the idea is still the most important thing – no amount of digital technique and visual trickery can disguise a bad piece of writing.”

Peter uses the time between jobs to write, and has just finished his first novel – a surrealist/science fiction thriller called ‘The House on Hydrogen Hill’.
