Alan Coltman (*1972) is a British film director, who studied his art at the Northern Film School of Sheffield Hallam University. In Realms of the Haunting, he is credited for direction and editing, as well as some of the voice acting and additional dialogue.
Shooting the full motion video content for Realms of the Haunting was realised with the help of a small camera crew and took about six weeks to complete, "filmed all in one cramped room," resulting in 25 hours of footage which had to be narrowed down to a meagre 2 hours for the finished product.
Other videogame productions that Alan has been involved in include
Collaboration with Sean BeanEdit
In 2009, Coltman produced a short anti-war film called "Drumhead", a collaboration with British actor Sean Bean (known for his role as Boromir in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, adapted by Peter Jackson) and Sheffield-based electronic band The Black Dog. In it, Sean is reading a poem about non-violence called Strange Meeting, written by officer and poet Wilfred Owen in 1918, preceding his untimely death while crossing the Sambre-Oise canal only a week before the Battle of the Sambre was ended by the signing of the First Armistice at Compiègne on November 11th 1918. The production received the award for Best International Short Film at the Polar Film Festival 2009 in Turku, Finland.
