Paul Nicholls, Factory Fifteen

As Co-founder and Creative Director at Factory Fifteen, Paul’s work focuses on film content and immersive technologies; his work has been exhibited worldwide, and he’s directed content for the world's leading architects and brands. Paul was included in the 2015 Saatchi and Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase at Cannes Lions. He earned his Master’s in Architecture at UCL.

Factory Fifteen was founded in 2011 by Kibwe Tavares, Jonathan Gales and Paul Nicholls, after studying Architecture in Unit 15 at the Bartlett, UCL. Factory Fifteen brings together a multi-disciplinary design-led approach to film making and immersive technologies. Our work spans narrative film, advertising and architectural projects.

We have created innovative works with high profile brands including Formula 1, Samsung, Film 4 and The British Film Institute. Factory Fifteen were selected as part of the Saatchi & Saatchi Young Directors Showcase and were nominated for the UK Music Video Awards 2015.

“The Pitch”

Paul Nicholls, Creative Director at Factory Fifteen guides you through the varying creative processes their studio adopts to win work in the many different sectors they operate within. Paul will showcase many un-published films created for architects, brands and events, finishing with their latest VR film for Nissans Formula E Team.  

“The work we do to convince clients we are the team for them is an unsung story in itself and I’d love to share that process with Blue GFX while highlighting some of our latest work”.
