Alex Taylor

Alex Taylor

Creative Director

An award-winning music video director and founder of Cosmic Joke, Alex directs the company’s projects. After years of freelancing, Alex started Cosmic Joke as an outlet for his directing. His feature film debut ‘Treasure Trapped’ is in cinemas now.  You might not be able to tell, but he likes the Seattle Seahawks…a lot.

After cutting her teeth with Warp Films and Shane Meadows, Shona joined Cosmic Joke to show Alex how it was done. She now produces all of Cosmic Joke’s output and oversees all projects, recently taking ‘Treasure Trapped’ from a film idea in a pub conversation to a globally recognised project…she’s the one to impress (hint: she likes cat pictures and a good brew)

Matthew Sturdy

Matthew Sturdy

Head of Post-Production

The most recent Cosmic Joke addition, Matthew is a Sheffield Hallam graduate with an uber talent for all things post-production. He ensures all of Cosmic Joke’s work is edited, polished and delivered to the highest broadcast standards and adds an editorial voice to all creative decisions. He may look wild and homeless but can be subdued by Lego.
