Creator – Writer – Producer – Director – Showrunner
Commencing his production career as a passionate but unpaid studio floor sweeper, Sean worked his way up to his first drama directing gig at Crawford Productions on their hit drama production Cop Shop.
Moving on to direct the now-iconic Prisoner: Cell Block H for Grundy Television (where he got his first screenplay credit) Sean has since written, produced or directed over 400 hours of internationally screened film and television drama.
Highlights of Sean’s career include eight of his screenplays being nominated for Australian Writers’ Guild Awards (with four of them winning their categories) and two of his screenplays being shortlisted for the prestigious State Premier’s Literary Awards in New South Wales and Queensland.
Other career highlights for Sean include travelling bi-annually to MIP in Cannes as Director of International Sales for Crawfords Australia, marketing their back catalogue as well as identifying international co-production and pre-sale opportunities for their drama development slate. The contacts and experience Sean gained in this role was instrumental in him later creating, writing, producing and directing the pilot to a 1-hour drama series based around the Australian Customs Service for the 7 Network in Australia.
In between motorcycle riding and yoga classes Sean is currently developing Sins of Our Fathers, a 13 part mini-series of one Australian family’s involvement in 6 major conflicts occurring over 100 years in 10 different countries – the 2nd Boer War in Africa, WWI in Britain, France and Germany, WWII in Burma, China and India, the Korean War, the Vietnam War of the ‘60s & ‘70s, and the present day struggles in Afghanistan.
