Directors / Shynola

director portrait
Filmmakers and mixed-media artists Chris, Kenny and Jason comprise the creative collective known as Shynola. The boys met at art college, bonding over a highly productive collaboration of films, painting, comics, poetry and music. After they organised a gallery show in London, archly named Shynola, the name stuck.

They have been directing consistently distinctive and award-winning work for over a decade. They have worked with Beck, Blur, Coldplay, Queens of the Stone Age, UNKLE and Radiohead, and created commercials for Honda, Delta, Nike, Sony, Orange, Unilever, Beats and Lowe's.
Their title sequence work includes Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker’s Nathan Barley, Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and cult favourite The IT Crowd. They also created the eponymous Guide for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Their debut dramatic short Dr. Easy was produced by Warp Films for Film4. It starred Tom Hollander and was shot by Oscar-nominated DoP Barry Ackroyd. They are currently developing their first feature film.
