Shynola are Chris, Jason and Kenny - a collective who have been directing constantly distinctive, award-winning work for over a decade. They have worked with Beck, Blur, Coldplay, Queens of the Stone Age and Radiohead, created commercials for Honda, Nike, Orange and Sony Playstation, and produced animation for the IT Crowd, Chris Moris and Charlie Brooker's Nathan Barley and created the titular guide for The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Currently they are writing and developing their first feature film.
