GALLERY 44: Ones to watch - Vicky Blanche

Blanche was inspired to pursue directing from her experiences as an actress. Starting at the age of eight, she continued acting professionally until entering film school. In 2001, Blanche scooped the Cannes Young Director of the Year Award. It was her first commercial for Cottons that caught people's attention. The spot features male roadworkers helping a colleague with period pains. Vikki has recently completed her campaign for Knorr out of BMP DDB.
