Will greed get the better of him? Phil & Olly aka Diamond Dogs met in the last murky years of the 20th Century at one of Wimbledon School of Arts now legendary parties. They teamed up in 2003 and began shooting no budget promos whilst busting their balls as Art Directors to pay their bills. Phil & Olly continue their careers as editor & art director respectively to fund their directing projects in a world of ever shrinking budgets. The boys are currently in production on music videos for Will and the People and The Enemy and in pre-production on a 30 second Miller Light commercial.
