Director Biography - Oisin Byrne

Born in the trip-hop and Banksy capital of Bristol, Oisin
attended the same school as Cary Grant. Having always had
a love for moving pictures, he began to explore the history
of cinema and it’s the whole spectrum of genres.
Oisin's eye was influenced by his father's painting. He
comes from a musical family and seeing their love for the
moving image, music, literature and art helped root him
deeply in storytelling and cinema from a young age.
After a period of experimenting with music and working
with industry artists, Oisin began to think about the power
of narrative in film and started writing screenplays while
building towards being a Director himself. During this time,
Oisin collected a first class BA honors in Filmmaking and
MA in Directing at Goldsmith’s University London.
