JOSEPH KIELY

 With 17 years experience as a freelancer in the film and television industry Joseph has spent the last ten years working as Production Designer and Art Director. He has developed a deep understanding of the reality behind the processes that go into audio-visual production. Being responsible for the “look” of a production means that he often plays a very integral role in the process.

Starting out by studying both Visual Art and Drama (Cinema Studies) at University he began his career in film and television after a period of time as a successful Visual Artist and Musician/Songwriter. During that time he also worked as an executive in the corporate world as Promotions and Marketing Manager for inner city real estate development firms and in the retail sector.

Joseph was able to draw on that life experience, using his knowledge of visual communication, as he worked his way up through the Art Department quickly gathering skills as he went. As head of department - Production Designer and Art Director - Joseph is asked to contribute to all the productions he works on in a creative and pragmatic way.

He has enjoyed a high level of success in his film and television career. He has collaborated in the making of an extensive list of television commercials, video clips, tv shows and feature films.

As a direct result he has enjoyed a level of professional recognition over the years being nominated for both Production Design and Art Direction awards nationally and internationally.

The greatest of this recognition came with the success of “Jerrycan” (Short Film) winner of the 2008 Cannes Jury Prize and then with “Yardbird” (Short Film) - in competition at the 2012 Cannes film festival. Along with these films there has been a number of other short films (which he calls art films or “films for the love of it.”), television commercials, feature films and music video clips that have also gained invitations to screen at some of the Worlds great film & television festivals such as Berlin, Montreal, Venice, Paris, New York, London, Sydney and Sundance.
