Henry initially made a name for himself by directing street style music videos within the UK grime scene. His early work included collaborations with renowned artists such as Dizzee Rascal, Kano, Professor Green, and Wretch 32. Continuing to excel in this field, he has created impressive videos for some of the biggest names in urban music. Notably, his contributions to Wiley's 'Boasty,' featuring a star-studded lineup of artists, and Stormzy's unmistakable 'Vossi Bop' have pushed the boundaries of grime video visuals. The latter earned Henry the Best Director award at the 2019 UK MVA's, while the former garnered significant recognition.
Henry's talent extends beyond the grime scene, as he has also directed standout music videos for artists like Billie Eilish, Rosalia, and Dua Lipa. His work on Dua Lipa's 'New Rules' achieved immense success, earning a D&AD Pencil and breaking YouTube viewing records, surpassing 2.8 billion views.
Energy, innovation, and creativity permeate Henry's work. His camera movements are swift and fluid, complemented by stylized choreography and striking art direction, distinguishing him as a master of short-form storytelling. In the realm of commercials, Henry has mirrored the pace and dynamism of his music video work, collaborating with clients such as Barclaycard, Budweiser, Gojek, Pepsi, Google, Converse, Stella Artois, among many others. His compelling Red Cross film, 'Rules of War,' earned him a prestigious Lion at Cannes in 2018.
