Dan May co-founded Painting Practice to help pursue his passion for the combined worlds of art department and visual effects. His diverse roles over the company’s 10-year history have reflected this ambition.
Most recently Dan completed work on Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book (to be released in 2018), Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and is currently working on the new adaptation of Watership Down as a sequence director.
Dan also loves Animation. In 2014, he had the opportunity to work with Passion Pictures as Production Designer on Nike’s epic 5-minute world cup commercial “The Last Game”.
Over the next ten-years Dan hopes to push the company further while retaining the core ethos on which it was built.
When not burning his eyes in front of a computer screen Dan likes to surf, hike and box.
Over the years Dan has shared his success with Bafta Nominations in Production design for Black Mirror, a Bafta win for Best VFX for Day of the Triffids and an Art Directors Guild win for Gravity.
