Neil Monaghan - Writer, Director, Filmmaker.

About Me

I am a BBC trained, award-winning filmmaker specialising in providing total video solutions. From screenwriting to editing I handle every aspect of video production. I produce both corporate and entertainment projects and my work ranges from web videos to full length feature films.

My Work

I began my career working in post-production for BBC Film Department. After three years I left to set up my own video production company. Over the years I have developed a skill set that spans the whole process of filmmaking. As a writer I have created several award winning shorts as well as multiple feature film commissions.

My latest feature is my first as a writer-director. 'Election Night' is a tense horror-thriller that taps into the rising unease and ideological division that our country and much of the world is suffering. It is a thought provoking drama as well as a gritty, violent horror. The film recently won Best Feature and Best Screenplay at the Brighton Rocks Film Festival. It has been officially selected for screening at festivals across the UK and internationally, including New York, Texas and Portugal.

My first feature ‘Made In Romania’ – a comedy ‘mockumentary’ about independent filmmaking... in Romania, stars Jason Flemyng, Jennifer Tilly and Elizabeth Hurley. See the trailer here. 

My corporate production includes several films for the ‘energie’ fitness franchise, CNBC, Air Bridge Cargo, DHI International and numerous web start-ups. 

My post-production skills include 2D and 3D animation as well as advanced CGI techniques.

I also create films to launch conferences like the Bond themed opener on the left. I can work to a tight budget overseeing everything that takes a production from concept to the screen.

You can see examples of both my corporate and features work on this site.

Why Video?

More than ever video proves itself to be the premiere marketing tool. In these days of multiple platforms only video is universal. It can be a stand alone product such as a DVD handout, a conference presentation, a viral ad, embedded into a web-page or linked to via email. 

Video quickly and effectively gets across a company message and the production itself need not be vast or overly expensive. Many of my web videos are only a minute or two long. 

"Neil produced an excellent video for us which perfectly captured the spirit of our gym. It is of a very high quality and has been praised and emulated by many of the other outlets in our franchise network.  We use it on our website, on YouTube and in the gym itself. I am certain that it has helped promote our business and attract new customers"
