Factory Fifteen

Tearing down the totalitarian system for The Bug. Uniting the urban experience for #city. Imagining AI betrayal in ANA. Telling the story of strength for Umpqua Bank.

Co-founded by Kibwe Tavares, Jonathan Gales and Paul Nicholls, Factory Fifteen’s backgrounds span architecture, 3D visualisation, engineering, animation and photography. They are known for creating alternative, fantastical realities.

Their combined talent and powerful design-led approach to filmmaking is sought after by high-profile brands including Samsung, Channel 4 and The British Film Institute.

The collective has won a raft of awards, including the Jury Prize for Animation Direction at the Sundance Film Festival, and their shorts and artwork have been exhibited internationally at festivals and venues such as SXSW, Onedotzeoro, Ars Electronica, Alpha-ville, The Creators Project and the Whitechapel Gallery.
