MindsEye swoop for Dugan O'Neal.

by Andrew MacGregor

 
 

MindsEye have described the arrival of director Dugan O'Neal as "a match made in comedy heaven".

Founder Hughie Phillips says O'Neal shares "very similar goals and ambitions" with the Percy Street outfit, as the California native demonstrates his comedy nous across commercials, branded content, and web series.


O'Neal's busy schedule also sees him write for US TV network Adult Swim and contribute to a filmmaking charity aimed at children. It's a hefty juggling act, but O'Neal's professionalism and comic drive guarantee results whatever the project.


It feels like our collective comedic sensibilities were destined for each other.

For example, this 2016 ad for Belvedere vodka successfully straddles the line between faux pretension and tongue-in-cheek humour - thanks to O'Neal's assured direction and a strong lead performance by James Van Der Beek.


O'Neal now believes he can develop his skillset even further with the help of MindsEye, noting: "It feels like our collective comedic sensibilities were destined for each other. I'm beyond excited to be joining the MindsEye family!"
