MindsEye is incredibly excited to welcome comedy writer/director Dugan O’Neal for UK representation. Dugan is a unique comedic voice whose work spans commercials, music videos and even crosses into the world of cult comedy-programmer, Adult Swim. His reel is infused with his signature humour and bold, cinematic style whilst he's worked with actors including James Van Der Beek, David Hasselhoff and Gary Cole.
Born in California to a rock’n’roll photographer father and contemporary dancer mother, his grandfather was also the famed cartoonist, Frank O’Neal. Growing up in such a creative household gave him the confidence to get stuck into drawing, photography and directing from a very young age.
Dugan got his start directing music videos for TV on the Radio, Ducksauce, HAIM, The Temper Trap, RY-X, Matt and Kim, Chromeo, The Acid among many others and he has since helmed campaigns for the likes of Trojan, Belvedere, Bravo, Phillips, Jack Links, McDonalds, KFC and Enterprise.
Outside of advertising, Dugan is a writer on the Adult Swim show Dream Corp LLC; executive produced by John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant whilst he sits on the Board of Directors for the non-profit group OMG Cameras Everywhere, started by a group of music video directors focused on teaching children the language of film, and how to make short films.
