His work is characterised by a light comic touch and warm, sparkling performances, that have a canny knack of capturing the emotional beats of a story, while still keeping it funny.
Declan’s towering catalogue of commercials has won him multiple international advertising awards, including a Cannes Grand Prix, Cannes Gold & Silvers, BTAAs, D&ADs & Kinsale Sharks.
His hugely celebrated Warburton’s campaign featuring Sylvester Stallone, The Muppets & Peter Kay was given even more weight recently when Robert De Niro starred in the fourth instalment of what is fast becoming an iconic campaign. Bob’s performance was cited by The Guardian as the actor’s best in years!
He is also very proud of his innovative Halifax campaign – a special effects masterclass, seamlessly dropping ‘Greg from the Halifax’ into footage from the Hollywood blockbusters, The Wizard of Oz and Ghostbusters.
Declan’s parallel long form career is equally successful. He has two BAFTA awards, with a further 6 BAFTA nominations, two International EMMY awards and countless other awards for his TV comedy and drama work.
His long list of Director credits include the classic series MOONE BOY, FATHER TED, HAPPINESS, HELP and COLD FEET. His feature film with Steve Coogan, ALAN PARTRIDGE- ALPHA PAPA was No1 at the UK box office.
Last year, Declan directed Idris Elba’s IN THE LONG RUN which won the UK Broadcast Digital Award for Best Comedy 2018 and was reviewed by The Times as “…the most surprising sitcom of this decade”.
His US TV work in the last few years has included directing episodes of the successful ABC Studios’ comedies GALAVANT and AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE.
Declan lives in Brighton, well Hove actually, but from time to time also spends time in the sun, working in LA. Happy Days!
