Sean McBride has been directing and shooting filmed projects for advertising and documentaries across the world for 12 years. He loves finding stories in unusual places and bringing that emotional experience to the viewer. “I like to take an unconventional approach to storytelling. I prefer to create an open schedule and spend more time with a subject discovering the nuances of the story. You get to see more of that inner world and incorporate more beautiful aspects of nature into your story that a conventional approach doesn’t allow for.”  Sean believes in collaboration with all levels of the creative process and will often team with a DOP to give a project more insight. “The best results come from the combined ideas of the team, being open to that makes it bigger than you which always gets you a better story in the end.” Born of immigrant parents from Germany and Ireland, Sean loves working in different languages and cultures and speaks German, French, and Spanish with ease.
