Mark Digby previously collaborated with The American director Anton Corbijn on the longform U2 video Linear.
Mr. Digby’s production design of the Danny Boyle’s multi-Academy Award-winning Slumdog Millionaire earned him an Art Directors Guild Award; the Evening Standard British Film Award for Best Technical Achievement; and a BAFTA Award nomination. His previous films with Mr. Boyle were Millions and 28 Days Later…
He came late to film design. After jobs in retail, accounting, and office management, he began working in amateur youth theater, acting and stage-managing. This in turn led to jobs in the Fringe Festival and children’s television. Staying in television, he began contributing to dramatic programs.
Then Mr. Digby began his career in film design. He was art director on Roger Michell’s The Mother, staring Anne Reid opposite Daniel Craig; and on writer/director Jasmin Dizdar’s Beautiful People. For director Michael Winterbottom, he has gone all over the world; as art director on Code 46 alone, this encompassed work in China, the United Arab Emirates, India, and the U.K. Their other projects together, with Mr. Digby as production designer, have included The Road to Guantanamo, in Iran and Pakistan; A Mighty Heart, in India, Pakistan, France, and the U.S.; and Genova, inItaly, among other movies and locales.
His newest film as production designer is Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go, starring Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan.
