Conor’s feature film Stitches, starring British comedian Ross Noble, won best film at the Midnight Xtreme section of the prestigious Sitges Film Festival.
He directed Zombie Bashers, an entry in the RTE Storyland online series scheme. The show proved extremely successful with horror and comedy fans alike and was voted the eventual winner of the competition. Conor directed all 6 episodes of the show.
His short films have won many awards including: Best Short at the Sitges Film Festival (Spain), First Prize in the Kodak Commercial Awards (London) and Second prize at Edinburgh’s Dead by Dawn Horror film Festival.
Fangoria described his latest feature From the Dark as “a taut, coiled piece of dread-infused cinema that… delivers everything one could hope for from a fresh entry in that subgenre.”
Along with developing feature film ideas Conor has worked on numerous seasons of the popular RTE sketch show The Republic of Telly, writing and directing sketches with acts like The Rubber Bandits, Damo & Ivor and Georgia Salpa.
