Hi there, I’m Jacob.
I’m a filmmaker with a distinct visual style, always aiming to envelop myself in all aspects of filmmaking. I have a passion for craft; I love to test out visuals, cameras, light and am excited by the discoveries made during these processes. Many of my films have self-developed and unique visual techniques that I have discovered through the testing and exploration phases, before a film goes into production.
I have some interesting experiences and accolades beneath my belt. I’m an Adobe Creativity Scholar – one of twenty-seven young people around the world (and one of two in Europe) to be financially sponsored by Adobe during my four years at film school. The scholarship champions the next generation of creative voices. Before film school, some of my earliest short films were screened in my local cinema for Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons (the films focused on environmental sustainability, a subject and issue Irons champions). I was awarded the Thomas F. Meagher Scholarship, sponsored by the charity devoted to the creator of the Irish Tricolour. Most recently, I was presented with the Highly Commended Student Thesis of the Year Award, for the best thesis in the film department at the National Film School of Ireland.
If you are an emerging screenwriter, and have a short script or idea you think might interest me, or align with my style, then please get in touch with me through the contact form. I am always looking for new collaborators and talent.
