Lorcan Finnegan’s commercials career has seen him direct work for a plethora of big brands including, EA Sports, NIB and Credit Union, bringing his comedic timing and knack for hilarious casting to the forefront of his work time and time again.
On top of his directing work, Lorcan is also a noted photographer. His work has been featured far and wide across global blogs and publications including Time Magazine, which named him as a photographer to follow.
More recently, Lorcan turned his attention to long form directing and his second feature VIVARIUM premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 in competition at Critic’s Week. Starring Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg, the film explores the story of a young couple looking for the perfect home who find themselves trapped in a mysterious labyrinth-like neighbourhood of identical houses. It has since garnered critical acclaim since global cinema release in March 2020 and described by the BFI as ‘a smart satire on suburban soullessness.’
Vivarium is his second feature film project following Without Name which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2016.
