Des Mullan

Director at Max Films

Des Mullan


Des Mullan is one of Ireland’s leading commercials directors.
His ace in the hole is that he is a former top creative director, which means he understands every aspect of the job. His reel shows that he is an adept at bringing these skills to all manner of advertising.
Dynamic visuals? Not a problem. Subtle performance? Consider it done.
From epic to hard sell, comic vignette to kitchen sink drama, his reel shows that he has what it takes.

Speedy, versatile and flexible, he is well used to achieving great shots in tricky situations to tight deadlines with a minimum of fuss.

He has a deep understanding of the craft and disciplines of commercials from cinematography, performance, and storytelling through to all aspects of postproduction.

He thrives on collaborating with advertising professionals to ensure that their vision ends up where it belongs: right there on the screen.

His work has taken him around the globe shooting in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Canada, Poland, Czech Republic, China, Japan, Mexico, Switzerland, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, UAE, Morocco and of course Ireland.

In addition to a career of award winning commercials in he has also directed a short film: ‘The Anarchic Hand Affair’ (2006, produced by Irish Film Board and RTE Television). It has since been accepted to several international film festivals including L.A. Shorts. (It secured a gong at the Huesca film festival in Spain).

The proof of his abilities is here on the site. If you need someone to turn your current ideas into a world class film, don’t hesitate to call.
