John Thole



Im John Thole, I like to write and direct shorts. I have BA in Media, photography and video production. I have made a selection of shorts and projects, both as part of my education and on my own. I have recently been a winner of the New Music Shorts scheme making a video, using the music of the band Gravenhurst and working with Warp Films.


My influences come from mainly a combination of film, painting and photography. Such as the films of Ozu, Brakhage,Lynch and Hiroshi Teshigahara. Through to painters and photographers such as Joe Coleman, Francis Bacon, Joel-Peter Witkin and Ralph Eugene Meatyard.
