Paul Mulraney is a lecturer and creative director, specialising in professional practice in film and digital media.
A background in Fine Art led Paul to Art Direction, and a career that started in music videos has since travelled through many branches of the creative industries including games, film and moving image, online - websites, mobile apps, branded content, viral and social media campaigns – including projects that use a combination of these channels and media.
Animation, illustration and interaction run through much of the work that he's directed, while the ability to lead multi-disciplinary teams and wrangle the complexities of innovative production environments is central to his role.
Clients have included the BBC, BT Sport, Endemol, Her Majesty the Queen, Lynx, Nat Geo Channel, Nissan, PayPal, The Spice Girls, Stephen Fry and T-Mobile.
His expertise in design and visual production is complemented by 30 years of experience working with sound, an encyclopaedic knowledge of underground music attests to a lifetime of crate digging. You can hear the results of this every Saturday night at 9.30 on his show Sound Travels, live on The Source 96.1fm.
A graduate of John Yorke's Professional Writing Academy, in recent years his interests have turned to screenwriting and he has a number of original projects - short films, anthologies, features and episodic TV - in development. Working in a number of genres including folk horror, historical drama and social realism, his writing is driven by a keen sense of the visual, a love of post-modern narrative structure, and a passion for magical realism that draws from a lifetime reading Borges, Calvino and Murakami.
