Myles O'Reilly

Film Maker

biography

Multi award winning music video and documentary film maker Myles O’Reilly unintentionally began his career by combining three previous and not so rewarding vocations to form a new hobby while unemployed in a global recession. A gofer with Irish national broadcasters RTE, a photographer and photographic printer, and experience as a recording artist signed to Sony Music Publishing and V2 records UK, in 2009 Myles borrowed a video camera to document local musicians performances and upload the footage to Youtube.

Since then, multi-tasking O’Reilly has filmed, directed and edited over 100 music videos and 20+ music documentaries of Irish musicians at home and abroad, including Bono, Glen Hansard, Villagers, Imelda May, The Script, James Vincent McMorrow, Sinead O’Connor, Lisa Hannigan, Mick Flannery and Julie Feeney, alongside other International artists such as Hollywood sound track virtuoso Ernst Reijseger, Icelandic artists Soléy, Múm and Amiina, Janelle Monea, Martina Topley Bird, The Staves, Tegan and Sara and a long arm list of many rising and emerging artists, all available to view from his blog Arbutus Yarns.
