ANARCHY FILMS – MEET THE TEAM
At Anarchy Films we have a simple ethos of collaboration, working in a very similar fashion to how Emma and Christopher Nolan worked with their film “Following”. We are a group of individuals who love making films, and we have a talented “pool” of people, many of whom will work in different areas to get the job done.
Please note: For full acting and crew lists, please see each individual film. The below list is not indicative of everybody who works with Anarchy Films.
Our core members are–
