Martin Curley

Hi, I’m Martin Curley, a Videographer/Cinematographer from Dublin, Ireland. Since first having my artwork published when I was fourteen, I have grown an ever increasing appetite to tell stories through images. Obtaining a first class honours degree in film production from the University of Wolverhampton, I swopped pencils for cameras and my work has gone on to be screened at festivals internationally and nationally.

While working as a Videographer/Cinematographer, I am experienced in shooting/editing/producing short films, Promotional videos, Corporate events, Drone videos, Music videos, Testimonials, Documentaries and Time-lapses. I was Director of Photography on 2 of the final 6 films nominated for the National Smedia Best Short film awards (including the winner) in 2015. My work as DOP on several music videos and short films has screened nationally and internationally at film festivals. I have also worked as a videographer for over 6 years at Lensmen, covering many aspects of the industry. Currently working on The Lir graduate short film with Vinny Murphy Producing and Juanita Wilson directing. Always open for challenges and working with creative and ambitious people, you can contact me at info@martincurleyvisuals.com or just DM me on Instagram.

A selection of some of my work:

Jorge Santos – Adventures In Jiu Jitsu (Documentary)
Jorge Santos: Adventures In Jiu Jitsu, is a zero budget ‘passion project’ which looks into JSBJJ, based in Ireland with affiliates in Sweden, Hungary & Mexico.
What started out as a short promo video turned into something much bigger. Once Jorge Santos and I started talking in his kitchen, I had the bare minimum of equipment with me.
Jorge and I discussed his journey through the world of Jiu Jitsu, the opportunities and friendships it has given him along with the many challenges in getting to where he is today.
