An international award-winning writer conversant in all media - new, old, analogue, digital - print, audio, video and, as the lawyers say "whether now known or hereafter devised"

Jeff Butler is an accomplished and award winning writer whose expertise spans a variety of media and disciplines.

He has been involved in every aspect of advertising as a writer, creative director, director and agency owner. Working for both huge multiinationals (JWT, McCann) and small boutiques (his own agency being somewhere in between.)

He has written and developed multi media campaigns for high profile advertisers including Kraft Foods, the Bank of Montreal, Foster's Lager (writing the commercials for with Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan) the Toronto Blue Jays, Toshiba and Pepsi Cola's Canadian and International divisions. He has received mutliple Canadian and International awards including golds in the London (UK) Radio Awards, Art Directors Club of New York (ANDYs), Toronto Art Directors Awards and Los Angeles International Radio Awards.

Also an award-winning television commercial director, Jeff brings an understanding to his writing not only of plot development and character/dialogue interaction but also the budgeting realities of locations, sets and special effects. He has directed 50+ commercials for Canada and the US (Hudsons's Bay Company, White Castle Restaurants, Quaker Oats) with budgets ranging from $25,000 to $2.5M and a combined total of more than 10 million dollars.

In addition to broadcast television and commercials, he has written and/or directed dozens of corporate videos and presentations for clients such as the international sports charity Right To Play, Schneiders Foods, Fosters Breweries (Australia) and Michelina's Foods (US.)

In the new media world, the emphasis has switched from doing a small number of high paying campaigns to a large number of lesser paying projects. WIth my expertise in both I am ready to provide you with great ideas and great writing at reasonable cost.
