Lysander Ashton graduated from Bristol University with a Masters degree in Physics in 2004.
He took an abrupt change of direction and headed into film and video production. He produced short films, music promos and documentaries including for Channel 4 and the UK Film Council.
He was approached by Fifty Nine to work on a show with one real actor and a large cast of cartoons. The show was “Alex” and from then on Lysander was hooked on this new use of video technologies. Lysander is now a director of Fifty Nine Productions and has designed shows at the National Theatre, ENO, and the Metropolitan Opera amongst others.
In 2012 Lysander took a key role in the realisation of the video design for the London 2012 Opening Ceremony leading Fifty Nine's in house animation team, creating all the projected content shown that night.
Lysander is passionate about marrying together his current artist work and his scientific background and to create new works that enable scientific knowledge to be grasped and understood at a new level by audiences round the world.
