Angus Aynsley is the British/American founder and managing director of London-based Almega Projects, which he set up in 2006 with the intention of making original, innovative films with an international slant.
Angus started working on WASTE LAND, his debut feature as a producer, in 2006. Angus is also executive producer on the brilliant and controversial FOUR LIONS from production company Warp Films, which was officially selected for the World Cinema Dramatic Competition Sundance 2010 and went on to be a box office hit after it’s release in the UK. A MAN’S STORY, executive produced by Angus, received its world premiere at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, October 2010. Directed by Varon Bonicos, the film follows British fashion designer Ozwald Boateng through twelve years of his life and career. The film is a feature documentary co-production with the UK Film Council team behind MAN ON WIRE.
Angus’ current projects include a political documentary thriller in pre-production, as well as THE BENGALI DETECTIVE, in post-production. Set within the colourful world of one of India’s busiest cities, the film follows a team of private detectives, as they try to solve cases of counterfeiting, adultery and a brutal triple murder.
Previously Angus produced a number of award winning short films including the drama OSCAR & ISABELLE, and documentary BERRYDOWN CAIRN, which was made in collaboration with the British land artist Andy Goldsworthy.
Before founding Almega Projects, Angus worked in senior management positions within the financial sector, in Paris and London, with both AXA Investment Managers and Robert Fleming & Co. He was educated at L’Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA) and Sciences Po in France and has a BA from Indiana University (USA).
