Lorcan Finnegan

Director

After completing a BA in graphic design in Dublin, Lorcan moved to London to work for Charlie Brooker’s (Black Mirror, Nathan Barley) company Zeppotron as a motion designer, editor and later as a director.

In 2004 Lorcan returned to Dublin to set up Lovely Productions. Since then Lorcan has written and directed several award winning short films, TV commercials and music videos.

His debut feature ‘Without Name’ was funded under the Catalyst Project and premiered at TIFF in September 2016. He is currently collaborating with writer Garret Shanley (Foxes/Without Name) on the sci-fi feature ‘Vivarium’, dystopian tragedy ‘Goliath‘, supernatural thriller ‘Nocebo‘ and time bending ‘Precipice‘.

His latest feature ‘Vivarium‘ starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, premiered at Cannes at the 2019 festival.
