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 2022/23.

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.

Going into 2022, I am looking to explore more opportunities in directing commercials internationally, along with shooting my debut feature film and developing two TV series. My short film 'Cave' premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2021 and will continue its festival life as I prepare for my debut feature film later this year.

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