Andrew Sheldon

Creative Director and Founder

Andrew is an award-winning journalist and film maker.  Having started his career in newspapers, he’s been telling stories that matter ever since.

His eye for a story often takes him inside the stories that everyone is talking about – like The Mystery of The Man On The Moor for Channel 4 and the story of the UK’s first ever hand transplant in My New Hand for BBC One.

When did you join True North?

Ouch. 2001

What do you do at True North?

Creative Director

What shows are you particularly proud of that you have worked on at True North and elsewhere?

We’ve made some lovely films, like ‘My Dad’s Army’ and ‘Stealing Shakespeare’, and some big crime shows like ‘Shannon: The Mother of All Lies’, ‘John Darwin: One Man And His Canoe’ and ‘Mystery Of The Man On The Moor’. However, I love all our series too.

Anything that stands out about your career?

I work with great people.

What’s your favourite bit of your job?

Editing a show… it can be such a creative process.

What show would you most like to make if you could make anything in the world?

Hmm. It would have to be The Sopranos. However, I know my limits. I also want to score the winning goal for Leeds in the FA Cup Final, and that’s not going to happen either. 

Anything you feel really strongly about in the industry?

The need to give people outside of London the same opportunities as those who live there.
