Since graduating the prestigious screenwriting degree at Bournemouth University, Luke has written and directed several short films, commercials and music videos that have been broadcast on TV and cinema screens nationwide. He has been featured in Shots, The Telegraph and The Guardian among others and was named one of Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow 2010’.

DISCO is Luke’s third short film. After the award winning PATRICK (2008) and VMS Grand Prize Winner/BAFTA Nominated MIXTAPE (2009), DISCO represents a step forward, resulting in a longer form piece with a larger cast and more detailed narrative. This has aided his progression on the route towards his debut feature film which he is currently writing.


A successful commercials producer, having produced ads for Mars, Marmite and Sky, James is an experienced member of the DISCO team. Although the film represents his first narrative venture, he is keen to continue producing drama in the future and has worked with Luke on a number of projects over the last year ranging from commercials and digital films all the way through to DISCO. They are currently working on developing their first feature project together.


Ollie has shot a number of feature films, commercials, music videos and short films. He has worked with acting talent including Tamsin Egerton, Brenda Blethyn, Timothy Spall and Danny Webb.

DISCO marks his second narrative collaboration with Snellin, after their award winning work together on MIXTAPE. They have also collaborated on a number of other short form projects including commercials for Wrigleys and LG and music videos including the first single from the self titled album for Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.


Mark is Australian. Hence the Barbecue.

Mark has cut on ad campaigns for Hyundai, Vodafone, Smirnoff, Snickers, Marmite and Toshiba to name but a few, as well as working on a number of feature documentaries and short films.

Last year Mark joined Sam Sneade’s company Speade in London. DISCO marks his second collaboration with Luke and in his spare time is currently training to conquer mountains in Tibet by carrying poisonous flowers through snowy fields and fighting loads of bad guys.


Kave Quinn studied Fashion at St Martins and after an initial foray into the costume department moved over to design. In 1993 she joined forces with Danny Boyle, Andrew MacDonald, John Hodge and Director of Photography Brian Tufano to collaborate on Shallow Grave. She went on to work with the same team on Trainspotting and A Life less Ordinary. Her other film credits include Layer Cake, Is Anybody there?, Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel and Harry Brown.  At present working with James Watkins on “The Woman In Black”.
