Jim Threapleton - MUTINY
Jim Threapleton studied History of Art at Manchester University before establishing an international profile as a filmmaker. Jim has undertaken campaigns for MTV, Sony, UNICEF, and FIFA.
His BIFA nominated debut feature film ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ premiered at the Edinburgh and Locarno International Film Festivals in 2008. This experience of working with improvised performances in film encouraged him to return to his interest in abstraction and take up painting again in 2009.
He completed his Masters degree in 2010, and was later awarded a Doctorate in Fine Art from the Chelsea College of Art, London.
