Jonny Button is a London based artist, animator and director. He was introduced to horror films from the tender age of five. His passion for cinema and story-telling lead him to write and animate his own short films, naturally inclining towards themes of the dark and twisted, and thus Button Films was born.

He studied Illustration, specialising in animation at Camberwell College of Arts London and has since trained as a teacher of art and design. He currently works in advertising as a lead animator, as well as developing various projects including his next short animated film.
