Paul Long

An experienced artist and founder member of metro-boulot-dodo.

Born in 1975 and brought up mostly in the cultural hotspot of Scunthorpe, I graduated from Lancaster University in 1997 with a degree in Theatre Studies. At that time I became a co-founder of metro-boulot-dodo and have spent my whole professional life working on a wide range of cross disciplinary projects for theatres, galleries, site specific spaces and the outdoors. All of which you can see on this web site so I won't bore you with details.

In addition to my artistic work I am also jointly responsible for the day to day running of the company including project development, fundraising, scheduling and budget management. I have also worked independently as a graphic designer and in higher education teaching roles for performing arts.

Key roles include concept development, creative writing, set design / development and interactive design for standalone artworks. Good understanding of technical design including LX and Sound. Graphic design, sound and video edit skills + basic web knowledge inc. comprehensive knowledge of Final Cut Pro, Quark Xpress, Photoshop, Illustrator, Freeway, Hype, Logic and others.
