Peter O Brien excels at building a rich atmosphere in all his work. By capturing candid moments with real people and weaving them into a larger narrative, he elevates simple first-person accounts into something much more powerful. His subtle and sensitive touch is blended with his stylish eye and training in sound design.
He finds a unique rhythm in telling a story, and combines beautifully composed shots with a provoking soundscape - bringing a new level of feeling and depth to even the simplest of stories. Peter, a native Irishman, lives in Dublin.
