ALAN FRIEL writer/director
‘Alan has a skill for capturing genuine performances and infusing his storytelling with authenticity. Having a background in Fine Art he brings a visual flare to his work while always focusing on story to create films that linger in the memory long after viewing.
His latest, starring Maxine Peake (Black Mirror) and Letitia Wright (Black Panther) perfectly illustrates his ability to combine strong performances with a confident visual approach.
He has directed many commercials, music promo’s and short films around the world with fellow Irish director Billy O’Brien under the directing duo name of Billy & Alan. Billy and Alan are developing a number of feature films including a project with Bad Robot and Paramount Studios.’
