Christopher Nolan: A fine time to recognize the director
by Mark Johnson
HollywoodNews.com: It is probably way too early in his career to do a Circuit 3 on Christopher Nolan, but with The Dark Knight Rises in theatres (and #1 at the box office for the second week in a row) it seemed like a fine time to recognize the director and help him celebrate his 42nd birthday. Born July 30th, 1970 in London, England, Christopher Jonathan James Nolan has come to be known as one of the finest directors working today, and has put together a resume over the last dozen years as equally impressive, or perhaps greater, than anyone else in that span.
He is a dual citizen of both the United Kingdom and the United States, having split his childhood between London and Chicago, Illinois. His filmmaking career began at the crisp, young age of seven, when he would use his father’s Super 8 camera to make short films using his action figures. After studying at Haileybury and Imperial Service College, he continued his studies at University College London, becoming the president of the college film society from 1992 to 1994. Like many directors, Nolan started with short films before taking on his first feature film in 1998.
