I’m an energetic and enthusiastic multi-camera and self shooting director with a broad range of skills in various aspects of production including editing (Final Cut Pro X), producing and writing.. I have nearly 20 years experience and a strong background in television, with a particular passion for multi-camera live events, factual documentary (observational and traditional), drama, visual effects directing and children’s programmes. Well organised, thorough and detail-focused, I thrive on working within a team but also more than happy to work on my own when required. I have also a background in education having worked as a Head of Media Studies and Digital Media Production.
I love what I do and I especially enjoy working with actors and presenters who have described me as ‘inspirational’, ‘easy to work with' and an ‘actors director’. Contact me on 07734309306 or brendansheppard@me.com Read Less

Brendan, the suave, sophisticated and ultimate professional, helped us with a live event in Amsterdam Gallery Directing. Under trying circumstances Brendan was a pleasure to work with at all times keeping the team and importantly the client relaxed at all times. I'm looking forward to working with him again on our next live event.

William Mann

I have worked with Brendan on several projects producing extra content for the DVD range of Classic Doctor Who. I always found him very organised and thorough. He researches his locations to gain the maximum benefit from them and plans his shots accordingly. His attention to detail is first class including managing the resources available to him in order to get the most for his clients budget.

He shows a great enthusiasm for his subject and this rubs off on those around him. As a result, Brendan tends to get the best out of his team frim leading by example. His technical knowledge is top rate and he knows how to get the best from his equipment.

I enjoyed working with Brendan and am extremely proud of the documentaries and dramas we produced.

Karen Davies

I have worked with Brendan in a number of capacities over the years. He's one of the most creative people I've ever worked with. An extraordinary writer, a superb director (in particular he gets the best out of actors) and he is also excellent at editing and post production.

As an actor specifically it is a dream to work with him - he offers the right balance of encouragement whilst not being afraid to push for those big performances. He cares about his cast and crew and while he pushes hard and drives these who work for him, he always thanks people and makes them feel important. Happy to coach and develop those around him and also be firm when needed.

I would recommend him to anyone in the industry without hesitation.

I always keep an eye on what he's up to - and hope to work with him in the future.

David James Keogh

Working with Brendan was both rewarding and fun. He's a talented & dynamic director who brings an unsurpassable enthusiasm to his projects. He thinks fast and has a hands on approach to his work which in turn makes him immensely approachable and easy to work for. Highest recommendations.

Josh Dyer

I've been lucky enough to work with Brendan on a number of occasions and the one thing that sticks in my mind is that no matter how enthusiastic and excited you are by the project, he will bring 10 times more. His drive and energy is boundless, which is infectious. Add in his diligence and and passion for the job and you have the perfect director/producer.

Tom Carter

I have had the pleasure of working with Brendan a couple of times over the years. He is an exceptionally talented, enthusiastic and passionate director. He makes everyone feel at ease and is extremely professional. I can't wait to work with him again!

Sarah

Brendan is a highly experienced and inspirational professional director. I have worked with him several times and he has boundless energy, flows with great ideas and yet encourages a collaborative work environment. I recommend him unreservedly as I've enjoyed every single job. In addition, he's witty and a lovely man who tends to cast great ensembles who compliment one another.

V Byron Actor.
