Dermot has established himself as one of Ireland’s most exciting filmmakers, with a body of work that demonstrates an exceptional level of craft, clarity of storytelling and authentic performances. Within a few short years in the industry, he’s worked for brands such as Tiger Beer, AIB, Lucozade, Nissan and LinkedIn. Dermot’s work effortlessly combines classical cinematic filmmaking, with modern naturalistic performances and raw emotions. His hugely emotive Christmas commercial for RTE and The Late Late Toy Show was Ireland’s favourite advert of 2020 and won multiple Gold awards at the Kinsale Sharks. His 2022 campaign for Weir & Sons “deal(s) with attachment, love and grief in a spare but powerful way” (Shots). Dermot’s short film 'Cave' premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in 2021 and continues its life on the festival circuit.
