Bristol-based UK filmmaker, known for his experimental, lo-fi, and hallucinatory style. Characterised by grainy super-8 textures, a palette of iridescent, glowing hues, and mesmerisingly evocative imagery. John’s distinctive visual flair has lent itself to music videos for Noel Gallagher, Portishead, and Savages amongst others. The vast majority of John’s work exists in the Live circuit as seen this year on Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Bird’s world tour and with Portishead where John has performed Live Tour Visuals since 2007. Highlights of which include Glastonbury’s Other Stage in 2013 and Coachella Headline in 2008. Aside from the music world, John also edited the BAFTA winning Short ‘September’ (Dir: Esther May Campbell 2009).
Watershed’s Head of Programme, Mark Cosgrove, interviewed John Minton; a Bristol-based filmmaker as part of a Focus on his work at Encounters Short Film Festival 2009.
