Moth Projects Signs Director Luke Shanahan
Moth Projects has announced the signing of director Luke Shanahan.
Says Jeff Darling “Luke’s perception of character and cast placed against his narrative approach brings a unique edge to any storyline he touches. Having Luke as part of MOTH for me brings a collaboration of true worth”.
Possessing a truly original body of work, Luke is best known for his black sense of humour, razor sharp dialogue and fluid visual style. Luke has amassed an award-winning portfolio of TV commercials and short films recognised both here and internationally, his recent spot for HOLDEN (TWITCH), picked up multiple awards at LIA (London International Ad Awards) while his last film, THE FIRST DATE is still enjoying a healthy festival run.
Not wanting to stand still for too long, he’s also just written a 6-part dark comedy drama that is being developed by ROUGHCUT TV (The OFFICE).
“The direction Jeff and Jonathan are taking MOTH is exactly where I need to be right now. For me, it’s a storyteller’s delight to work across a variety of platforms with such a quality team of people.” Says Luke.
Jonathan Samway says “It is one of those rare opportunities in this business to work with such a talented director. Luke has one of the best dialogue / narrative comedy reels in Australasia and I am really looking forward to developing the next chapter with him”
