Gary Shore

Gary Shore is known for his detailed visual approach to filming - something that's made him extremely popular with clients.

The Dublin native won a Royal Television Society award for his work straight out of film school, and a faux film trailer he produced led to a bidding war between studios. His first feature - 'Dracula Untold' was a box office hit worldwide.

In between all that, he's directed commercials for clients including Guinness, Adidas, and UGG

"The Wall"
This visually striking ad for Huawei has Lionel Messi facing down a defensive wall with a serious "You shall not pass!" policy. Opponents, the media (a recurring target for football-based advertising this summer), and even a rampaging scoreboard combine to form an impenetrable barrier. However, all it takes is a selfie with a fan to inspire the Argentine wizard to score. It's not the most graceful brand integration we've seen, but Knucklehead's Gary Shore steers the VFX spectacle with a sure hand.
