Globally renowned as a filmmaker whose unique vision and superlative talent is matched by her thirst for experimentation, Ruth Hogben’s work is as innovative in concept as it is in technical execution. Her pioneering work conjures up imaginary worlds and characters in the metaverse that seamlessly co-exist with those in real life. Combined with her bold artistic principles, Ruth’s focused aesthetic has placed her firmly at the forefront of film.

Hogben’s strength of vision has led to some of the most ground-breaking collaborations in contemporary film and entertainment and her list of clientele speaks for itself. From internationally recognised artists including Lady Gaga, Prince and Kanye West through to creatively disruptive fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen, Matty Bovan and Gareth Pugh, Hogben surrounds herself with artists and collaborators whose passion and vision mirror her own. 

The award-winning work she created during her tenure as creative director with Lady Gaga alone indicates the level of her aptitude and breadth of artistic diversity. Major experiential performances at the world’s highest profile events, from the Grammy’s unforgettable David Bowie tribute to the jaw-dropping Superbowl performance, were all overseen by Hogben. Her tenacious 360 approach encompassed everything from directing music videos, film and photography campaigns through to tour visuals and merchandise design.

As an early champion of digital media, Ruth has worked extensively within both commercial and editorial fashion and beauty, creating campaigns and stories for top global fashion brands and magazine powerhouses such as as Fendi, Dior, Skims, Ariana Grande, Rick Owens and Louis Vuitton, AnOther magazine, ShowStudio and Dazed. She has also undertaken commissions for the Metropolitan Museum’s ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibition in New York, and the Alexander McQueen ‘Savage Beauty’ retrospective which appeared at both the Met and the V&A Museum in London.

Hogben intricately involves herself throughout the filmmaking process, refusing to be limited to one medium. Alongside her moving-image work, she also shoots stills on large format 10×8 film, as well as digitally. Ruth has a wide breadth of experience in editing and special effects, and wholly embraces the post-production process.
