Thomas Shawcroft is a Director of Photography. He recently climbed up Mount Kilimanjaro to shoot a documentary called ‘Equal Playing Fields’, about the world's highest football match played by 22 women.
Thomas has worked on 35mm shooting a short film ‘Transmission’ - the film has been accepted into prestigious film festivals Fantasia and L’étrange.
Growing up in Southampton, Thomas was intrigued by his father’s work as a photographer for Yachting World magazine. Gaining an understanding of film, Thomas developed a precise creative vision, as well as an awareness of the importance of being selective when capturing images.
Working with DOPs such as Chris Seager BSC, John Pardue BSC and Gavin Finney BSC ignited a passion for crafting images, and led to a practical understanding of the qualities it takes to be a DOP.
Thomas loves creating a truly individual look for each film, working with the director and heads of department to create a united vision.
