GALLERY 35: Ones to watch - Simon Cracknell

After the fall of the Romanian dictatorship, Cracknell, a traveller at heart, trailed across the country to help with the rebuilding of the orphanages before leaving for the Himalayas to spend time with Tibetan monks. After toying with the idea of becoming a war photographer he found his new passion, directing and writing a number of short films which he hopes will "never see the light of day" before doing his test spots from Playstation and his latest spot for Prudential.
