Guy Simmonds

Producer / Director

Guy joined Firecracker in 2010, cutting his teeth as a researcher, AP and DV director on the BAFTA nominated “Big Fat Gypsy Weddings”.

His much talked-about single “Secret Life of the Human Pups” won him plaudits for gaining the trust of a very secretive community, and reflected their lives with warmth, insight and humour.

More recently Guy earned a Broadcast Digital Award nomination for Best Documentary for his film ‘The Brit Who Tried to Kill Trump”  and he took part in Channel 4’s prestigious Cutting Edge Directors scheme.

Having learnt his trade working with some of the industry's top directing talent, he is now the production company's sole in-house director, and along the way has made not just one, but two films about men with giant testicles.
