By the mid-1980s, Morris had set up his own company, Nash Morris, which he ran for the next five years. When his two partners retired in 1990, Morris then partnered with Lizie Gower at her fledgling company, Academy. There, Morris concentrated on developing new directorial talent. One young director he began to work with was Jonathan Glazer.
Within ten years, Academy became one of the world's top commercial and music video production companies, co-owned equally by Morris, Gower, and Glazer. They have produced some of the world's most acclaimed commercials and music videos of the last decade. They have also represented and produced commercials for some of the world's leading directors, including Jonathan Glazer, Peter Cattaneo (THE FULL MONTY), Spike Jonze (ADAPTATION), and Simon West (CON AIR).
Two years ago, Academy started a small features division to develop projects with the company's fourteen in-house directors. BIRTH is their first feature.
