INCEPTION

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN (Director/Screenwriter/Producer) is an award-winning filmmaker who has been recognized for his work as both a director and screenwriter. Nolan directed, co-wrote, and produced the record-breaking 2008 film "The Dark Knight,” which grossed more than $1 billion at the global box office. Nolan was honored by his peers with nominations for Directors Guild of America (DGA), Writers Guild of America (WGA) and Producers Guild of America (PGA) Awards. Among its many honors, "The Dark Knight” also received eight Oscar® nominations, winning for Best Sound Editing and Best Supporting Actor for Heath Ledger.

Born in London, Nolan began making movies at an early age with his father's Super-8mm camera. While studying English Literature at University College London (UCL), he shot 16mm films at UCL's film society, learning the guerrilla film techniques he would later use to make his first feature, "Following.” The noir thriller was recognized at a number of international film festivals, prior to being released theatrically.

Nolan's second film was the independent feature "Memento.” Nolan directed the film from his own screenplay, based on a short story by his brother Jonathan. The film brought Nolan numerous honors, including Academy Award® and Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay, Independent Spirit Awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay, and a DGA Award nomination.

He then directed the critically acclaimed psychological thriller "Insomnia,” starring Oscar® winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank. In 2005, Nolan co-wrote and directed "Batman Begins.” The smash hit actioner re-imagined the "Batman” film franchise, pleasing critics and fans alike.

Nolan also directed, co-wrote and produced the mystery thriller "The Prestige,” which received Oscar® nominations for its outstanding art direction and cinematography. Next, Nolan is developing the new "Superman” film, as well as a third "Batman” feature.

Nolan currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, producer Emma Thomas, and their children. Nolan and Thomas also have their own production company, Syncopy.
