ollie lansdell

Ollie works as a Cinematographer & Colourist with experience on experimental art installations, Virtual Reality films, documentaries and fictional films. He has collaborated in various roles with Rural Media, Pentabus Theatre, Wrapt Films and Taskscape Media.

Ollie frequently collaborates with Taskscape Media working in Europe and Africa on long-form documentaries about place, science and culture.

Ollie is a current member of the Invisible Arts Network (IAN), a collective of inspiring artists, arts organisations and technologists creating Digital Art in rural areas. Ollie was involved in IAN’s first commissioned artwork “As Above So Below” collaborating with local artists, utilising 360° aerial and underwater cinematography, 3D printing and Photogrammetry.

After completing the BFI Film Academy Scheme with Rural Media in 2016, Ollie returned as a mentor on the course between 2017 and 2020. It involved teaching 16-19 years olds principles of cinematography and filmmaking for the creation of several short films to be screened at the Borderlines Film Festival.
