Elliot Wheatland-Clinch

Head of Production and Design London, UK

Elliot (He/Him)- As the head of Production and Design, I’m an animator, editor, videographer, (occasional) writer, and (full-time) botanist. I specialise in all things sci-fi and fantasy. Follow me on Twitter, LinkedIn and drop me some ideas/feedback on email.

Hi, I’m Elliot, the head of Production and Design.

I’m more of a visual guy than wordsmith, so I’ll keep this short… being Berkshire born and bred, I’m equally thick in the arm and thick in the head.

I betrayed my southern roots by moving up north to study Film and TV production at the University of York, and there began to pronounce grass as ‘gr-ass’ and not ‘gr-arse’. Returning south, I began mastering the art of making tea and coffee as a runner for a post-production house in London.

I soon took the opportunity to cut my commute down by 90% and become a freelance video editor. However, after realising I was talking to my dog more than people, and developing an unhealthy relationship with the characters in my audiobooks, I soon craved an office environment and began working at Thred.

If you want to know what I’ve been up to recently, you need only check out our social media accounts…
