Danny Boyle is Artistic Director of the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. A director and producer, he has won numerous awards for films including Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours. Mark Tildesley’s career includes film, theatre and production design. Suttirat Larlarb is a designer for film and theatre. Both long-term Boyle collaborators, she and Tildesley together with the writer Frank Cottrell Boyce, are key members of his creative team for the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
‘There are very few directors that work the way Danny does. He breaks down the traditional boundaries. It’s more like a think tank. With him we contribute to the story as opposed to decorating the story.’
