Mini Bio (1)

Richard Loncraine has earned great acclaim for his work in film, television and commercials. He studied sculpture at the Central School of Art before attending the Royal College of Art Film School. He spent three years working for the BBC before moving into commercials. Since those days he has successfully alternated directing films with directing television productions, and the sheer range of his work cannot fail to impress--from Dennis Potter (Blade on the Feather (1980), Brimstone & Treacle (1982)) to period comedy (The Missionary (1982)) and from The Gathering Storm (2002) (universally acknowledged as the finest representation of Winston Churchill on screen for years) to the romantic charm of Wimbledon (2004). No wonder Loncraine is now one of the most respected British directors.
