Is Patrick Fischer really one of the most important creatives working in the UK film industry today or is he on this list because his post production and film finance company just happen to be headquartered at the Hosptial Club? Co-authors of this list?
Time Out London and The Hospital Club present the 100 most influential creatives in Britain
London media gurus The Hospital Club and Time Out devised the h.Club 100: a search for the most original and influential people in the UK creative and media industries. Then we asked you to vote – and here are the results: the talent that is shaping the future.
Okay, there are actually not 100 people on this list: Grayson Perry sneaked in twice and we’ve counted some multi-person projects as one entry. It’s a reminder that this is a snapshot of where UK creativity, in all its messy brilliance, is at right now. It’s been an incredible year for the arts in the UK. In 2012 we fell for ‘Sherlock’ (again), cheered on ‘Matilda’ and cried at Danny Boyle’s Olympics curtain-raiser. From backroom boys to major stars, we salute the innovators, visionaries and pioneers behind what’s now and what’s next.
Is there someone we've missed? Start browsing the list below then tell us who you think should have been on the list in the comments.
If there is "someone" you have missed? You have missed a whole category: Architecture. Architecture shapes the environment that surrounds us every day and therefore influences us all the time. One could therefore say this is even the most import and influential cultural discipline. For some inspiration have a look at bdonline.co.uk or at http://www.architecture.com/Awards/Home.aspx.
