After studying at Brighton Art College, Paul Henry began designing artwork for bands like The Stranglers, The Buzzcocks and Simple Minds and soon moved into creating marketing campaigns for Dr Feelgood, U2 and Kid Creole & the Coconuts. He then started to make music videos. He directed the music videos of There Goes A Tenner and The Dreaming, as well as working with Iggy Pop and Marianne Faithfull.
Henry became a commercials director and worked extensively with J Walter Thompson, Saatchi & Saatchi, Benton and Bowles and BBH.
In 1990, he directed the television documentary, ‘Les Miserables – Stage By Stage’, which was broadcast throughout the world and won an Ace Cable Award.
More recently, his work became focussed in the corporate sector, writing, directing and producing drama, brand identity and interview-based programmes.
