My name is Charlie Shackleton. I am a nonfiction filmmaker living and working in London.
My film The Afterlight and my one-on-one performance piece As Mine Exactly are both touring.
I am currently working on two feature films: in production with Field of Vision, and in development with the BFI.
In recent years, I made the short films Lasting Marks, Fish Story, Personal Truth and Copycat, as well as the TV special Missing Episode, one part of the VR anthology A Machine for Viewing and the protest film Paint Drying.
Before that, I made two feature-length essay films: Beyond Clueless and Fear Itself.

I regularly work with Catherine Bray and Anthony Ing through our production company LOOP and have worked with Ross Sutherland on several projects including Stand By For Tape Back-Up. I was a creative consultant on Kitty Green's The Assistant.
Over the years I've also made several video essays including Pasta as Prologue, Histoire(s) du TikTok and Frames and Containers, and written about film for Field of Vision (Sex, Lies and Wikipedia), Filmmaker (The Six Fonts of Cameraperson), Sight & Sound (The Case for Unfair Use) and Vice (I Went to Extraordinary Lengths to Sidestep Britain's Film Censors).
