Cinematographer Ruairí O'Brien.

He is only the sixth Irish cinematographer to achieve membership. Following in the footsteps of compatriots Seamus McGarvey (Atonement), Suzie Lavelle (Normal People), Stephen Murphy (Atlanta), Robbie Ryan (The Favourite), and Baz Irvine (Fate: The Winx Saga).

“It’s a proud moment to be welcomed into a society of your peers that represents some of the very best work in the world,” O’Brien told IFTN. “The letters BSC have followed the names of some of my heroes on the screen and it’s a huge honour to be considered one amongst them.”

Ruairí attended Dun Laoghaire College of Art And Design in the nineties and after leaving, spent a few years shooting documentaries and no-budget dramas and music videos. 

He broke into TV drama in 2006 shooting Murphy’s Law for the BBC with director Colm McCarthy. Other credits include the films Dating Amber and Sea Fever and TV shows Vigil, The Fall and Line Of Duty

He is next heading to Vancouver to complete work on The Power for Amazon.

Ruairí is a founding member of the Irish Society of Cinematographers.

“I quite like the challenge of writing characters without handles, for an audience to hold on to, you have to really work at keeping pace with them and go on the journey;“ Writer/director Antonia Campbell-Hughes discusses It Is In Us All
“We’ve tried to portray real life, real relationships, and all the complexity that comes with that;” Producer Collie McCarthy discusses his debut Netflix Original, I Used To Be Famous
