Jake Dypka is an award-winning London based commercials and content director. With humble beginnings editing martial arts DVD’s, Jakes natural film making talent, coupled with his unique empathy and conveyance of the human experience, has defined him as a special new talent. With a passion for both documentary and drama, Jake’s principal concern in his work is to bring truth and humanity to his craft.
His subjects vary widely, from filming soldiers at war in Afghanistan, to Kate Moss for Topshop, to poet Hollie McNish talking about breastfeeding. He regularly combines traditional documentary form with drama and stylised cinematic techniques to make films that are visually rich yet honest. Within the inspired variety of his collection of work, his style has a romance and raw sensitivity to it, as exemplified particularly in his powerful and compelling recent film ‘Embarrassed’.
Whether working in fashion, documentary, or traditional advertising, Jake’s work always seems to avoid clichés and connect emotively with its audience.
