Find out who created 'The Mythologist'.
Director / Producer
John is an artist who has been covertly creating crop circles in the fields of England for over a decade. His introduction to documentary was as a contributor to TV programmes that featured his artworks. You can read about his crop circle making exploits in Iain Aitch's book A Fete Worse than Death.
John's documentary subjects are drawn from the edges of contemporary culture. Underpinning all of his work is a deep interest in how myth and artifice can shape and alter reality.
Before pursuing his passion for film making, he ran an award-winning digital design company, producing content for companies such as MTV, Sony Music, BBC and Discovery.
John is currently developing a number of new projects. His background is in the fine arts and he exhibited for five years before abandoning the gallery in favour of the countryside. He has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, an MA in Sculpture, an MA in Hypermedia Studies and an MA in Documentary Direction.
