I direct

I’ve directed a hell of a lot of (forgive an awful word here) ‘content’. I say ‘content’ because I’ve made an eclectic array of TV ads, short films, feature films, stage plays, radio plays and music videos. My work has won awards as diverse as student BAFTAs for fiction film to New York Festivals Awards for radio documentary. I understand story, and I understand medium, so give me a brief, script or concept, and I will guide the performers and technicians to deliver their best. To paraphrase Jack Nicholson, quoting John Lennon, “I’m an artist, and if you give me a tuba, I’ll bring you something out of it.”

Here are some samples. Below is a bit from the FilmBase/RTE award-winning short film ‘Blood Coloured Moon’. The film was selected for the award by Emmy and Oscar-nominated director Lenny Abrahamson and edited by Nathan Nugent, editor of the Oscar-nominated ‘Room’ and ‘The Door’.

Here are some idents I shot for a TV station in Ireland. I’ve worked for years producing, directing and editing promos for various broadcasters around the world. I’ve won a Promax award!

This is a feature horror I wrote and directed. I shot it in Thailand and Los Angeles on 35mm film. It got a theatrical release in 3 territories and a global release on DVD. The making of it was a story in itself. (Buy me a beer, and I’ll horrify you with the gory details)

Here’s a TV commercial I directed for a newspaper in India. The company is the biggest family-owned media company in Asia including various TV stations, newspapers, magazines and web portals. I produced a lot of ‘content’ for them.

Here’s a supercut of my screen adaptation of ‘Double Transformation’, a poem by Oliver Goldsmith. I’ve directed numerous short films around the world, and I have received various awards for them, including FujiFilm International Filmscript Award, MTV European Eye, Los Angeles Film Awards, and Kerry Film Festival Best Experimental Film Award.
