Paul Dean has been writing and directing short films, commercials, in-house videos and music videos for 15 years. Selected for a script writing course with North West Vision (UK Film Council), ‘First Take: Distinct Voices, Diverse Lives’, Paul set about writing and directing his first 15 minute short “The Lovers” - eventually earning praise for the quality and scope of the zero-budget film. He was then shortlisted for the ‘NW Vision Digishorts’ scheme where he developed his craft under mentor Paul Fraser, writer on the Shane Meadow’s film, “Dead Man’s Shoes”. He has since gone on to write and direct on many projects.
Paul has spent the past six years based in Prague and working throughout Europe, shooting in Czechia, Turkey, Greece, Germany, Poland, the Ukraine and elsewhere, working on hundreds of student films, music videos, tv shows, commercials, features and shorts and learning his craft on set with some of the world’s best directors and cinematographers. He has extensive contacts in the Czech film industry and is able to provide access to professional crews, locations and equipment at the best prices.
