Ciaran Lyons

Ciaran Lyons is a director, writer, editor and visual effects artist based in Glasgow, Scotland.

At the heart of his portfolio of creative music video work lies a playful approach to physical action, DIY visual effects and a bold eye for colour – all wrapped up in a love of the sublimely absurd.

Imaginative and meticulous storyboarding drives Ciaran’s output of inventive imagery for his engaging commercial projects, across both live action and animation. Commercial clients include Papa Johns, German Doner Kebab, Arnold Clark and Drinkaware.

His narrative short films create alternative worlds where supernatural elements, societal bounds and emotional motivations play out in strange and unexpected ways. Ciaran’s debut short film, The Motorist, was selected for Palm Springs, Slamdance, and Glasgow Short Film Festival 2020. His second short, The Mad Shagger (supported by SFTN) is currently in post production, with future shorts and feature film script development in the pipeline.
