Austen is a man of unbelievable stories. Quite literally. His proudest moments include playing bowls for England, meeting the Queen, and surviving a Shootout in a Brazilian Favela (one of those is a lie).

Incidentally, he attributes his becoming a director to Ringan who, so the story goes, had his hands around Austen’s throat outside a pub threatening to kill him if he didn’t.

He cut his teeth in post-production at the Mill; immersing himself in the dark arts of post production whilst working alongside Directors as a VFX Supervisor. Through his work, Austen found he wanted to understand the industry from another side, and with a drunken throttle from Ringan, made the leap over to Rattling Stick. He maintains a light-hearted humour and cheekiness throughout all his work, which reflects his own personality perfectly.
