O'Brien joins Furlined

O'Brien joins Furlined

US prodco signs LA-based director and photographer.

Director and photographer Niall O’Brien has joined Furlined for US commercial representation. 

Dublin-born, LA-based O’Brien studied fine art photography at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology, where he developed his naturalistic, voyeuristic approach to imagery, and subsequently documentary films. 

Previously represented by Reset in the US, O'Brien's commercial work includes spots for brands like Nike, Adidas, and Canon out of agencies including Droga5 and AMV BBDO.

His latest photography exhibition Three Cities, which opens in London later this month. is a series of intuitive landscapes and portraits shot over four months in the Silicon Valley. As part of the project, he created a short film/music video to the song Wonderful World by Solomon Grey. 

“I have been watching Niall’s work develop for a number of years,” says Ben Davies, EP and director of development at Furlined. “We worked together in my previous role at Droga5, and now we get to partner again at Furlined. I have no doubts Niall’s craft for passion, integrity and energy will lead to the highest level of success here in the US.” 

Academy Films will continue to represent O'Brien in the UK.
