Paul directed his first commercial at age 19 and his first documentary at age 20. He left South Bank University with an Art Diploma before embarking on a Film, TV, & Animation course at Croydon Technical College. He turned down an offer of an MA at the Royal College of Art to pursue his directing career, working at Central Television as a Director/Cameraman for three years. At age 21, Paul established Streetlight Films a UK commercials and film Development Company. The company quickly gained international recognition with Paul winning Best Director and The Gold Award for BMW “Scales” at the British Film & TV Craft Awards. This and the subsequent award winning Puma spot featuring Steve McQueen firmly established Paul as a groundbreaking commercial director, both in the U.K. and around the world. Paul Street currently resides in Los Angeles and runs Streetlight Films in The US.
