Owen Paterson is an Australian production designer. He was the production designer for Legendary Pictures' Godzilla and Godzilla vs. Kong.



OWEN PATERSON (Production Designer) is a two-time BAFTA nominee for his work on the 1999 sci-fi thriller “The Matrix,” and his designs on Stephan Elliott’s flamboyant comedy “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.” For the latter, he was also awarded the Australian Film Institute (AFI) Award, the third of three nominations he has received for the prize. For his work on “The Matrix,” he also collected AFI and Art Directors Guild nominations. Paterson worked on the complete “Matrix” trilogy.

The Western Australia native studied his craft at the Perth Institute of Film and Television and directed a short film in 1978 called “Silvana” before embarking on his design career. He reunited with director Elliott on his very next project, the 1995 comedy “Welcome to Woop Woop,” and also counts among his design credits Michel Gondry’s “The Green Hornet,” the sci-fi thriller “Red Planet,” as well as the Wachowskis' “Speed Racer” and their production of the dystopian thriller “V for Vendetta,” for which he won Best Production Design from the San Diego Film Critics Society.

Paterson also designed several indigenous Australian productions that include “Race the Sun,” “Travelling North” and “The Place at the Coast,” for which he was AFI-nominated. Additionally, he served as art director on the Australian features “The Return of Captain Invincible” and “Bliss,” earning his first AFI nomination for the latter film.

His television credits include Roger Spottiswoode’s “Noriega: God’s Favorite,” the NBC thriller “The Beast” (based on the Peter Benchley novel), “Shout! The Story of Johnny O’Keefe” and Chris Noonan’s “The Riddle of the Stinson.”
