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’ toured cinemas worldwide and since then, he’s accumulated a strong portfolio of music videos, shorts and TV commercials.  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. She took ‘Treasure Trapped’ from a pub conversation to a globally recognised film and has been moving mountains since then to ensure Cosmic Joke delivers a high calibre of film and brand content…she’s the one to impress (hint: she likes dog videos and a good brew).

Matthew Sturdy

Matthew Sturdy

Head of Post-Production

Chief of all things post, Matthew is a veteran editor who has developed 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’s also nurtured a specific post-production aspect of our business to cater to external productions. He may look wild and homeless but can be subdued by Lego and comics.
