A reclusive child prodigy, Ergo spent his teenage years composing a plethora of operas, followed by a spell in the Mormon church and as a stand-up comedian, then first broadcasting at WFMU radio in New York.

 

Since the early 2000s, Ergo has performed and been broadcast all over the world, creating a body of work of incomprehensible size and ambition - hundreds of hours across theatre, song writing, text, electronic music, collage exhibitions, installations, opera, video and radio plays that play with expectations and cover a range of subject matters, from the esoteric to pop culture, from Gala Dali's dinner party's to Brexit and the apocalypse.

 

Despite operating on a zero or no budget basis, Ergo has drawn acclaim from a diverse range of sources, including Tom Ravenscroft, Frankie Boyle, Michael Nyman and Matt Groening. Despite such high regard, Ergo remains hard to categorise, but is certainly an artist of uncompromising vision and intent 'a uniquely English original we should cherish deeply'

After graduating in Film Studies at Sheffield Hallam in 2001, Iain began his editing career at Triangle Post in London, a post production company attached to the ad agency Saatchi and Saatchi. Here, he learnt the craft of short form editing; from pitch tapes, mood reels and ads to promos and music videos.  He left in 2007, going freelance to pursue a wider range of projects, working across a number of formats, including children's tv, factual entertainment, live music, adventure travel and documentary.

 

Signing with agency In Crowd, Iain developed a reputation for instinctive storytelling and open collaboration, and was drafted into some of the UK's biggest production companies to help shape numerous award winning new series. However, Iain has always had an interest in music and the arts, alongside a life long passion for observational documentary, inspired as a child by films such as the BBC Arena strand, ambitious long term projects such as Hoop Dreams, the TV series Seven Up and Jacques Peretti's cult late night oddity The Trip.

Alex was born in Carlisle, a city in the North of England.

Alex has been making what industry colleagues describe as exciting, innovative, high quality films for over 18 years. His work is often daring, edgy, distinctive filmmaking that pushes boundaries both in subject matter and content.

His films have been in-competition at over 40 international film festivals and have won numerous awards.  Alex has had the privilege of working with some of the best actors and technicians the industry has to offer.
