G.M. Film is named after G.M., the film I made for the London Production Fund in 2001. It is the aegis under which I make all my films.
Originally from North Yorkshire, I read Classics at Oxford and later Animation at the Royal College of Art, from where my graduation film Like Me, Only Better (2007) was selected by seventy international film festivals and won prizes at five. Since then I have focussed mainly on hand-drawn animation.
I regularly show work at international animation festivals and many of them are represented by the British Council Film Department: http://film.britishcouncil.org/what-is-animation
Between 2000 and 2006 I made a series of live-action films inspired by Edwardian Cinema: G.M., Century’s End, The Time Travellers Of 1908, Greenwich Degree Zero, Split Screen and Biljana. I also contribute films to Kerry Baldry’s One Minute touring programme of artists’ film and video.
