Beginning his career as a fine art painter Alan moved on to study film in Dublin and London before he started making commercials. Alan’s work stands out, above all, for its strong, lyrical quality. His two award-winning short films, ‘The Wind’ and ‘Snow’, have a timeless innocence and charm, both examples of visual storytelling at its most beguiling. Richly textured and heavily atmospheric, they evoke an almost fairy-tale sense of time and place. His ads for Scottish Tourism and Scotts Porrage Oats evoke Celtic landscapes that seem positively magical and painterly. Alan has crafted similar commercials for numerous brands imagencluding Orange, Barclaycard, and the UK National Lottery.
