Bio

 

Justin started making TV commercials in Australia in 1995 as a result of running his own ad agency.

 

After an epiphany in an edit suite, he moved into short film, winning awards in St Kilda, Sydney and New York for his first film, Wrong Number. After its New York screening, the film was picked up for distribution by Pop.com/DreamWorks Pictures.

 

Justin relocated to Ireland in 2002 and began work on his first feature. Completed in 2006, Ghostwood is a supernatural thriller set in New York and Galway and stars Alan Devine (King Arthur, Veronica Guerin), Patrick Bergin (Sleeping With The Enemy, Patriot Games) and Louise Osbourne (America’s Sweethearts, Dr. Dolittle 2). The film was produced with Ned Dowd (Apocalypto, King Arthur) and is being distributed by Non Stop Sales (Sweden).

 

Justin continues to work in commercials in both Australia and Europe and is working on the script for his second feature.

He is a member of the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland and The Irish Film and Television Academy.
