      A British director and screenwriter, Garth Jennings, along with producing partner Nick Goldsmith, was one half of the production team Hammer & Tongs. He and Goldsmith spent a decade producing award-winning music videos like "Right Here, Right Now" for Fat Boy Slim, "Coffee & TV" for Blur and "Imitation of Life" for R.E.M., as well as making a number of television commercials. Jennings eventually segued into films as a director, and with Goldsmith's producing help, helmed the long-awaited adaptation of Douglas Adams' classic sci-fi comedy "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (2005), which was finally made four years after the author's death. From there, he directed the coming-of-age comedy, "Son of Rambow" (2009), and provided the voice for Bean's Son in Wes Anderson's animated "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" (2009). Though Hammer & Tongs ended their 17-year collaboration in 2012, Jennings remained a viable director of film, commercials and music videos.
