TOM DEY [pronounced
"Dye"] hails from New England, where he studied philosophy, religion,
and film at Brown University. He graduated in 1987, then continued his pursuit
of film at the Centre des Etudes Critiques in Paris. He lived there for two
years, then moved to Los Angeles in 1990 to attend the American Film Institute.
While studying at the AFI, Dey interned at "American Cinematographer"
and wrote several articles for the magazine, including a profile of the
celebrated Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa.
In 1993 Dey received his master's degree from the American Film Institute, then
proceeded to put together a commercial director's reel shot primarily with a
hand-wound 16mm camera borrowed from a friend. A year later his reel caught the
attention of commercial production house Ridley Scott Associates, which offered
him a directing contract. Dey signed on and has remained there ever since. His
commercial clients include Mastercard, U.S. Airways, Showtime Networks, and L'
"Shanghai Noon" is his feature film debut.
