Beug's next stop is Station Film
Bicoastal prodco signs director for commercial US representation.
Irish-born Beug, whose sister Lena is a Station Film stablemate, is known for work that is naturalistic, grounded in realism and often tinged with humour or mischief. Domino’s Paving for Pizza and Puma Faster Delivery, featuring Usain Bolt, are two of the commercial highlights on his reel, alongside spots for brands such as Mazda, Kellogg's and Prudential.
Beug moved to New York after graduating from Dublin's Trinity College, becoming Employee #8 at Droga5 in 2006, where he started off producing and eventually moved into directing in-house for the agency.
His longer-format projects include the award-winning short film Hanger B, about the aviation museum in The Floyd Bennett Airfield in Brooklyn and its octogenarian volunteers and the travel series This Is My City, co-created with a friend who shared his desire to see the world through the eyes of locals, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. Beug's latest short doc The Swimmer, created with the Irish Film Board, is also doing the rounds on the international festival circuit.
“Thomas has immediately brought his enthusiasm for telling a powerful story to Station by winning his first opportunity,” says Stephen Orent, Station Film’s managing partner. “Teaming with Mechanica in Boston, Thomas will bring his vision to three wonderfully scripted spots that take you on an epic journey through everyday life.”
“Station is an awesome company and I’m delighted to be part of the family,” Beug comments. “I’m always impressed by the work they put out and their openness to tackle such a vast range of projects and produce work at such a high level. It’s great to be in the company of such talented directors (including my big sister Lena!) and I’m very excited to collaborate with Steve, Caroline and the whole Station team to make great work together and have some fun in the process.”
