This is a music video that I developed, directed and co-produced for the band FRED. My responsibilities ranged from developing the initial concept and storyboard, finding a location and dance studio to work with, sourcing extras, directing the shoot and supervising the editor for the final cut.
I was part of the team that created this animation, which was designed to tackle the widespread myths about migrant integration and immigration, as a preventative measure against racism. The process involved researching the most popular myths associated with asylum seekers and refugees. This is the simple story of how a myth can take on a life of its own once it is given voice.

I was part of the team that created this animation, which was designed to raise awareness and give voice to asylum seekers. The process involved visiting a Direct Provision Centre where asylum seekers are housed and interviewing its inhabitants. This is the simple story of the lives of the children we met and the day-to-day effects of their living conditions.

Below is an Illustration I created for a charity organisation who were concerned with the rumour that immigrants were coming to 'take our jobs!'. The illustration shows how many people leave their countries to seek work, and all for dfferent reasons, so we should consider this before jumping to conclusions about 'others'. The illustration focuses on the mother son relationship, as this is understood by most as a loving one.

Between the years 2003 and 2013 I worked with Fred The Band. During this period I developed my skills in music composition, production, sound design and engineering.
The band received extensive airplay and television coverage in both Ireland and Canada, having their music used in adverts and television shows including 'Gossip Girl'.
For our final album I had the opportunity to collaborate with Ben Hillier (Elbow, Blur, Magic Numbers) and Howard Billerman (Arcade Fire).
