Adrian McDowall

Director

Represented by:

Humphrey Elles-Hill

Adrian is a double BAFTA award winning filmmaker and has been named on Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ list. He is a versatile director with
over twenty years experience working across drama, documentary, comedy and television commercials.

Last year, Adrian spent eight months working as the 2nd Unit Series Director on Lucasfilm’s action adventure TV follow up to Ron Howard’s original 80’s
movie Willow. He directed multiple drama, action and VFX sequences across all eight episodes of the Disney+ show, also stepping up to direct the main
unit during COVID emergencies.

Prior to this Adrian was hired as the lead director on Julia Donaldson’s Princess Mirror-Belle for BBC Studios, directing two episodes of the first season.
This is Julia’s first live action adaptation.

During the second Covid lockdown, Adrian directed the Two Doors Down Christmas 2020 comedy special, written by Simon Carlyle and Gregor Sharp
and produced by BBC Studios. It screened on primetime BBC2, receiving a number of four and five star reviews.

Prior to this he directed the reshoots and Second Unit for the BAFTA Nominated BBC1 submarine thriller Vigil, produced by World Productions and
starring Suranne Jones and Martin Compston.

In 2019 Adrian directed the 2nd Unit on the Sony and Starz drama series Outlander – directing across all twelve episodes in season 5, including the epic
battle sequences in Ep 507 for director Stephen Woolfenden.

Following on from this he was hired by Archery Pictures to direct the re-shoots and 2nd unit for the young adult NETFLIX drama Fate – The Winx Saga
created by Brian Young (Vampire Diaries). The show launched on the 22nd of January 2021 and has maintained the NETFLIX number one spot across the
world for over a week.

In 2018 Adrian was hired as the Lead Director of two major shows for Jane Roots’ Nutopia. The six-part NETFLIX series The Last Czars, chronicling the
demise of the Romanov dynasty – which streamed to over 25 million viewers in the first few weeks, and featured on the NETFLIX Top 5 list in the U.S., and
Jesus: His Life, an eight-part event series commissioned by A+E Networks for The History Channel – which sold to all territories across the world.

In 2018 AMAZON PRIME launched Adrian’s four part documentary series Grand Prix Driver, with unprecedented access to the legendary Formula One
team McLaren and their superstar drivers – including two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso – during their most turbulent pre-season in recent
history. The show is narrated by Academy Award Winner Michael Douglas.

Adrian’s passion is to tell unique human stories in a visceral, cinematic and intimate fashion.
