a teenager, Guy Ritchie grew a passion for filmmaking after watching Butch
Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969). He refused to attend any film school
because as he once said “The work of film school graduates is boring and
unwatchable”. At the age of 15 Guy drop out of school to pursuit his dreams,
and in 1995, Guy got a job to be as a runner, on a film set, ultimately
starting his film career. He quickly progressed from being a set runner to
directing music and promos for bands and commercials. The profits he made from
directing music videos and promos, was invested into writing and making his
first short film The Hard Case (1995).  The 20 minute short film is also the prequel
to his debut feature film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998). When the
film was completed, 10 British distributors turned the film down before it

successful and did well in the theaters, putting Ritchie’s name on the map as
one of the rising filmmakers of that time. The film also lunched the careers of
actors like Jason Statham, Jason Flemyng, and Vinnie Jones.
