Chris, Kenny and Jason became friends at art college and formed the directing team ‘Shynola’. They immediately earned recognition for their extraordinary film work, which creatively combines imaginative animation and live performance. They are restlessly inventive, always making new and original work, which has enabled them to remain fresh for some 20 years.
Their music video work includes Radiohead, Beck, Blur, Coldplay, ABBA and Queens of the Stone Age, with commercials for Nike, Audi, Playstation and Maserati. They also created notable title sequences for ‘The IT Crowd’, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’, ‘Mandy’ and Netflix’s ‘GLOW’.
They have received scores of awards including a British Independent Film Awards and three Emmy nominations, with multiple wins at The Edinburgh International Film Festival, D&AD awards and UK MVA awards.
They are currently developing long-form television and feature film projects.
