Brendan’s work is hugely evocative and is recognised for its authentic, moving performances. His use of colour, understanding of music, the juxtaposition of form and general artistic streak make him really something quite special.

Brendan started out making unofficial videos for music he loved and within a few months, The Creator’s Project described his work as the ‘Best Unofficial Music Videos on the Internet’.

In September 2013 Brendan made a video for a then unknown artist called Hozier for his track, ‘Take Me To Church’. The powerfully emotive film went viral and has over 500 million views and two MTV VMA 2015 nominations to date – Best Direction and Best Rock Video. Since then he has gone on to win Best Music Video twice at the Kinsale Sharks as well as Best Irish Film and has been nominated for an IFTA. In 2014 The Irish Times selected him as one of the 50 most creative people in Ireland
