ABOUT DERMOT

AWARDS/HIGHLIGHTS

I am a filmmaker based in Dublin, represented internationally for directing. I work predominantly in commercials, however have exciting drama projects in development for production in 2023.

I like to think that classical storytelling and garnering authentic performances are where my strengths lie and although I aspire to make film/TV throughout my career, I too have a genuine love of good advertising. I was also delighted to have been part of the judging panel for 'Film Craft' at the Kinsale Sharks of 2022 and The Immortal Awards 2023.

Going into 2024, I am looking to explore more opportunities in directing commercials internationally, along with promoting my debut feature film KING FRANKIE, which premiered at DIFF to great critical acclaim.

I am the proud founder of Banjoman, Ireland's 'Production Company of the Year' 2021 and 2022 at The Shark Awards and the 2021 'Immortals #1 Irish Production Company'.
