Born in Australia but raised outside of Chicago for most of his life, London’s love of film began when taking regional classes at the New American Theater at age 10. After graduating high school, he moved to Sydney, Australia where he got his first taste of working in the industry by assisting Producer Brenton Kewley.
Elliot returned to the States in 2002, where he attended Columbia Film School in Chicago. Majoring in Film directing, he continued at Columbia and worked on various student projects as well as interning with the Jerry Springer Show. London’s yearning to work in film was too great for him to remain in Chicago so in 2005, he relocated to Los Angeles. London started in Los Angeles by associate producing the feature film Dirty Laundry that had its theatrical release in 2007. He continued working with Director Maurice Jamal on Ski Trip 2 until he decided to form London Productions to pursue his own endeavors.
In 2007, London created a concept for a new TV series with writer Jennifer Klieman. The pilot Boulevard was London’s directing debut. The pilot had great success with audiences and was considered by a studio. Currently it is being developed into a web series. Boulevard was showcased at the 2009 Cannes Short Film Corner.
In 2009, London continued shooting short films and scored a huge success with 306, a dramatic short that has been showcased in over ten film festivals worldwide. With London directing and the talent of Sandra Valde behind the camera, the film has garnered much praise. This dynamic directing & cinematographer duo are actively working together on future projects. Valde was the DP for Kaboom that screened in Cannes 2010.
In 2010, London had his first opportunity to work on reality TV by shooting DVD coverage for the new Showtime show The Real L Word. London has had many editorials written about his up-and-coming work as a director. He was until recently VP of branding and marketing for TLA Releasing, where he is still a partner.
