SIMON CHANNING-WILLIAMS' association with Mike Leigh began when he worked as Leigh's first assistant director on the 1980 BBC television film ''Grown—Ups."
After working together again, as co-producer of the BAFTA-nominated short film "The Short and Curlies" and as producer of the award-winning feature film "High Hopes," the two men decided to form an ongoing partnership and set up Thin Man Films for this purpose.
The first Thin Man project was the feature film "Life is Sweet," which gained critical honors, garnered awards worldwide, and won new audiences for Leigh's work internationally. They then collaborated on the 1992 short film "A Sense of History," which was named Best Short Film at the Clermont Ferrand Film Festival. This was followed by several feature films: the multi- award-winning "Naked"; the Cannes Film Festival Palme
d'Or award- winning "Secrets and Lies"; and, most recently, "Career Girls."
Outside of his relationship with Mike Leigh and Thin Man Films, Simon Channing-Williams has produced several other feature films, including "Puccini," for director Tony Palmer; Clive Rees' "When the Whales Came"; and "Jack and Sarah," directed by Tim Sullivan, which was an enormous hit at the U.K.
box-office in 1995.
As Executive Producer, Channing-Williams' credits have included the BAFTA-nominated "Little Pig Robinson," directed for television by Alan
Bridges; the short film "The Pan Loaf," winner of a Silver Hugo Award at the Chicago Film Festival and the Best Short Film award at the Cork Film Festival; and, most recently, Vinny Murphy's feature film "Accelerator," shot on location in Ireland.
