About Brian

Hi there, I am an award winning director from Cork City, Ireland
Over the past number of years, I have lived, wandered and worked in London, New York, Dublin and Normandy, France
I work independently across a number of disciplines as a creator, director, writer, photographer, musician, producer and anything else that needs doing
I run the successful production company Madra Mór Productions and have also worked with larger companies such as the BBC, The National Theatre, London, and the UK's largest immersive theatre company, Punchdrunk
My short films have been screened in film festivals throughout the world including Raindance, London Short Film Festival and The Chicago Irish Film Festival. I currently has a number of short films and two feature length films in development. I have also created music videos for some of Ireland's leading musicians and bands
In March 2018, I had my first solo visual exhibition in St. Peter's event centre in Cork City
I spends the month of July teaching a film course at the Berridge Theatre and Film programs located at the historic Chateau le Mont Epinguet in Normandy, France
My photography has been featured in numerous print and online publications and I have worked with a number of bands and creative companies to help produce photographic content
My previous theatre show (my debut directing/writing) - 'We Lived In Cities' - was nominated for a 'Spirit Of The Festival' award at the Dublin Fringe Festival and played to a sold out Triskel Art Centre as part of The Cork Film Festival. He currently has a new show 'Zenographic' - (an immersive experience) - in the early development stage. I also recently won best play at the 10 X 10 short plays at the Cork Arts Theatre.
I have also played music in a number of original bands and have toured Ireland, America and the UK with highlights including playing alongside Ocean Colour Scene in Dublin and playing London's famous watering hole - The Dublin Castle
