Amongst Crossman’s other feature film credits are many notable films, including Mike Leigh’s Topsy-Turvy, Atonement, La Vie en Rose, Harry Potter 2,3 & 4, Maleficent, Mr. Turner, and The World Is Not Enough.
These films have given him the chance to work with a wide range of leading directors, such as Mike Leigh, Ridley Scott, Alfonso Cuaron, Ron Howard, Gillian Armstrong and Joe Wright.
Prior to Napoleon, Dave Crossman also collaborated with Scott on Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood, and American Gangster.
In 2013, David Crossman was approached to supervise the new series of Star Wars films, which began with JJ Abrams’ The Force Awakens. During that time, he and co-designer Glyn Dillon were asked to design the two prequel films in the series – Rogue One and Solo.
After six years of working consistently on the Star Wars franchise, he returned to one of his favourite subjects, the first World War, co-designing the Sam Mendes film 1917 with Jacqueline Durran. This was followed by co-designing the Batsuit for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. His most recent film work was Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
