Scottish producer Christopher Young is best known for his debut feature as the producer of Venus Peter, a low-budget but beautifully made adaptation of poet Christopher Rush's chronicle of life on Scotland's rugged Orkney Islands that won numerous international festival awards. At age 18, the Edinburgh-born Young studied Romance languages at Pembroke College, Oxford. During his time there, he and his brother helped found a traveling Shakespearean comedy troupe that presented the great plays to various British schools. He also found time to return home and work in the Edinburgh Film Festival two years in a row as well as teach English in Paris. Following his 1982 graduation, Young became a Scottish Film Trainee for one year. Working as an Art Department assistant, Young got his first film experience working on Michael Radford's Another Time, Another Place, in which he also made his acting debut in a bit part. Afterward, Young worked most frequently in documentaries, commercials, and in television shows. In 1983, he entered New York University's film school. After making several short films there, he went back to Britain to work as an assistant editor on such films as Roddam's The Bride (1985). Young founded his own film development and production company in 1986 and made his commercial debut with Briefcase (1989), a short film that was screened at various international film festivals. Following his success with Venus Peter, Young and his company produced director Ian Sellar's Prague (1993) which also went on to win several awards at international festivals.
