John Nolan

John fuses comedy with his passion for animatronics to create hilarious and off-the-wall films that stick to your mind like glue.

John is a London-based director who, of course, loves film—but cameras and film technology didn’t interest him much to begin with. What did interest him, though, was practical effects and puppets.

He began his career in the the film industry doing make-up and special effects. Soon John’s love for all things in-camera, got him working as an animatronics specialist on features such as „War Horse“, „Where the Wild Things Are“ and the „Harry Potter“ film series.

As well as working on feature films, John fuses his talent for comedy with animatronics and has worked for clients such as Adidas, IBM, Lady Gaga and DKB. He was nominated for the Young Directors Award.
