Shot this short video while recording podcasts for US company Intertrust, at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Shane Connelly, who was one of the guiding lights in Exchange Dublin; recently started a project creating short video portraits of Dublin cyclists. I’ll be shooting and editing eight of these brief portraits, while Shane carries out the interviews (and handles all the thankless organising!). The idea is to humanise cyclists in the face of mounting evidence that drivers do not see us as fully human. Cyclists are often depicted as hordes of lycra clad fit young men, but this doesn’t reflect the diversity of cycling road users in the city.
We’re still actively seeking participants, particularly from underrepresented communities. More info here – http://cyclistsofdublin.com/
I directed / edited and co-shot this video for Dublin band Shy Mascot. Previously we’d worked together on the video ‘Pardon Me‘.
4 Lights, the new single from Dublin band Shy Mascot. All the incredible moving shots were carried out by cameraman Sean Bond on his electric skateboard. The video stars the incredibly talented young actor, Lorcan Strain, who recently guested on Game of Thrones final episode.
The video was inspired by my experiences working as a delivery cyclist on the dangerous Dublin city roads during my masters degree.

I shot and edited this advertisement of Ellie Kisyombe, and asylum seeker standing in the 2019 Dublin local council elections. Previously I’d worked with Ellie on videos for her amazing ‘Our Table‘ initiative.
