Sean's filmmaking experience began by making instructional videos as a canoeing instructor. He later became interested in making DVDs as a means to advertise while working sales for water filtration. He found it was a great way to convey a lot of information clearly. He then became interested in making tourist DVDs for visitors to Skye as a commercial venture.
He went on a short filmmaking course at Sabhal Mor Ostiag on Skye to help gain the necessary skills, where he was also expected to make a short film. However being unable to speak Gaelic nor having access to many resources or previous experience, he pulled together a production, found a local to narrate some pictures and won the prize for Best New Gaelic Voice in the college prize giving. Using the prize-winning short film as a foundation he went on to make that tourist DVD with great commercial success.
Sean has since written a script for a teenage comedy feature film and is pursuing commercial DVD opportunities.
