Dougal Wilson (born 1971) is a director of commercials and music videos.
Wilson was born in Heswall, England. After studying astrophysics at Durham University, he worked as a copywriter at the Leith advertising agency in Edinburgh before moving to London to pursue a career as a director.
His music videos include "Satisfaction" for Benny Benassi, "Tribulations" for LCD Soundsystem, "Who Am I" for Will Young, "Take Me Back to Your House" for Basement Jaxx, "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time" for Jarvis Cocker, "What's a Girl To Do?" for Bat for Lashes, "Happiness" and "A&E" for Goldfrapp, and "Life in Technicolor II" for Coldplay.
He has directed commercials for companies such as Orange, Stella Artois, Olympus, Becks, and Coca-Cola.
Wilson has twice won Best Director at the UK Creative and Design Awards (in 2004  and 2005 ), as well as having won Gold, Silver and Bronze Lions at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival   and D&AD awards in 2006  and 2008. 
Wilson was pictured on the front cover of the March 2009 edition of Creativity Magazine wearing a jetpack and seemingly hovering a few feet above the ground in front of a car park. Inside, he leads the edition's main article, 'Directing 101', in which '15 top directors' dispense advice learned on the job. 
In October 2010, a short film directed by Wilson entitled No Pressure was released by the 10:10 campaign in Britain to spread awareness of climate change. The film was written by Richard Curtis and showed highly contested scenes of violence. The film was finally withdrawn by the 10:10 campaign.
