With experience on over 50 feature films, Alan brings a true cinematic approach to every commercial he creates. Alan has directed hundreds of commercials, everything from soup (Cup Noodle) to nuts (Trojan). And, because he is a really just a big kid, Alan loves shooting toy commercials.
Originally trained as an illustrator, Tim Burton chose Alan to help imagine many of the unforgettable characters in Beetlejuice, and then bring them to life as the film’s Visual Effects Supervisor. Alan has created memorable sequences in many popular films, including Men In Black, Sleepy Hollow, The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, Legends of the Fall, Love and Other Drugs, and Defiance.
Alan has been nominated for a BAFTA, wrote an Academy Award nominated short film, and hates wearing shoes.
