Bio

 

John Deery is an award-winning British film director.  He began his career as an actor working in theatre and television and started in the film industry as a runner on commercials working with many top directors. He attended the National Film & Television School. Early in his career Deery produced and directed numerous high profile corporate films. 

 

 

Deery's first feature film, ‘Conspiracy of Silence’, which he wrote and directed, stars Academy Award-winner Brenda Fricker, Hugh Bonneville and Chris O'Dowd.  It was developed at the Sundance Screenwriters' Lab and is a well-reviewed film, winning the National Board of Review's Freedom of Expression Award.  He won the prestigious Hartley-Merrill International Screenwriting Award and was nominated for Best Film Director at the Irish Film and Television Awards.

 

 

For British television he has directed two 90-min ‘specials’ of the popular comedy-drama series, ‘Fat Friends’, starring Alison Steadman, Ruth Jones and James Corden; a feature length episode of ‘The Brief’, starring Alan Davies; and a 2-hour prime-time television film for the ITV network, ‘If I Had You’, starring Sarah Parish – which received excellent notices and achieved impressive viewing figures.
