Dr Kingsley Marshall is Head of Film & Television at the CILECT accredited School of Film & Television, based within Falmouth University, UK. The ScreenSkills accredited subject area consists of 25 staff working with over 500 undergraduates, supplemented by a postgraduate community studying from MA level through to PhD. He is an external examiner for Raindance's Filmmaking courses, and has served as advisor on ScreenSkills Work Experience Project in 2022.

As a film practitioner working within Falmouth University's Sound/Image Cinema Lab, Kingsley is involved in the production of short and micro-budget feature films with partners including o-Region, Early Day Films, Film4, BBC Films, Storm Force Films and Bosena. He was executive producer on the feature films "Wilderness" (Director: Justin John Doherty, 2017) and "The Tape" (Director: Martha Tilston, 2021), both commercially released in 2021, "Long Way Back" (Director: Brett Harvey, 2022) which was released in cinemas in September 2022, and "Enys Men" (Director: Mark Jenkin, 2022), which premiered in Cannes, is in competition in London Film Festival October 2022, and is due for release in 2023 through the BFI in the UK and Neon in the US.

With his own company Myskatonic, Kingsley produced "Backwoods" (Director: Ryan Mackfall, 2019) with Neil Fox (included in the BluRay release of definitive horror documentary Woodlands Dark & Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror (Dir. Kier-La Janisse, 2021), and "The Birdwatcher", with two further feature film projects in development. As a composer Kingsley worked with director Mark Jenkin ("Bait", 2019), writing the score for "Hard, Cracked the Wind" (2019), and with Rachael Jones on "Dean Quarry" (2021).

Kingsley's research focuses on cultures of production, the representation of asymmetrical conflict and the ethics of artificial intelligence. He has published widely and speaks regularly at international conferences, including events at University of Oxford, New York University, and as an invited speaker to the School of Advanced Studies, University of London. 

Kingsley co-edited with James Rocha the collection "Philosophical Reflections on Black Mirror", published by Bloomsbury in 2022, contributing a chapter on the representation of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Other recent work includes a piece on Lynchian storytelling with Rupert Loydell published in "Listen to the Sounds: Music and Sound Design in Twin Peaks" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021), and a chapter on the composer/director working relationship in film for "A Critical Companion to Robert Zemeckis (Lexington Books, 2020), 

Due for publication is a study on the representation of asymmetrical conflict that forms part of the "Handbook on Violence in Film and Media" for Palgrave Macmillan, a chapter on representations of artificial intelligence in the "Bladerunner" franchise for a collection on Denis Villenueve, edited by Jeri English and Marie Pascal for Edinburgh University Press, and a chapter on film music as narrative device for a collection on "Call Me By Your Name", edited by Edward Lamberti and Michael Williams.

Prior to joining Falmouth University, Kingsley served as a critic and has written about popular culture - from film and music through to video games, the internet and literature - for over 30 publications. His writing has featured on the BBC and MTV, in Little White Lies, anthologies on hip hop and soul, and countless sleeve notes and biographies.
