About the Role
3angrymen is an award-winning production company on a mission to make films that matter.
We’re looking for a director to come and work with us in-house, to help us develop and produce films for our clients - whether that’s a short documentary for a national charity, an internal comms film for an international bank or an animation aimed at teenagers.
