Joseph Mann is a charming filmmaker with a remarkable range of talents.
Joseph graduated from the Glasgow School Of Art in 2009, where he developed his meticulous skills as a model-maker and animator. His talent soon caught the eye of BlinkInk directors David Wilson and Simon Willows, and he has since worked with them on a number of projects, including directing mind-bending sequences for Skream’s Listenin to The Records on My Wall, intricate animation for the feature film Africa United and animating psychedelic leg art for the Freedom promo for Nokia. His first solo project for Blinkink was a charming animated short film This is T.I.E. for The International Exchange.
Most recently, Joseph was asked by Keaton Henson to create a video for his single 'Small Hands', which saw Joseph directing his first music video. Working with Blinkink puppeteering duo Jonny & Will, he crafted a forest world and its inhabitatnts entirely by hand to tell a beautiful and heartbreaking story of love, loss and lonelienss.
Joseph’s mature yet simple designs require a perfectionist approach, and he consequently spends a lot of time making sure everything is just right. Appropriately enough, Joseph also extends the same perfectionism to his snappy sartorial style.
