Hammer & Tongs is the pseudonym of British director and producer duo, promo and film director Garth Jennings and producer Nick Goldsmith, as well as the name of their production company. Best known for their work on music videos for Blur ("Coffee & TV") and Supergrass ("Pumping on Your Stereo"), Hammer & Tongs have moved on to directing movies, their debut being the 2005 film version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Due to the success of his debut feature Jennings raised £3.5 million to produce Son of Rambow.[1]

After making two feature films and a large number of music videos and adverts, the duo announced in July 2012 that they would be taking an extended break from working together in order to pursue different ventures on their own.[2] In 2016, Jennings wrote and directed the computer-animated musical comedy film Sing.
