Ambrose McDermott has been Squid Media Ireland’s resident cinematographer and sometime editor since its inception and is now the company’s main producer.
Ambrose grew up in the folklore-steeped countryside of the Cooley Peninsula and he developed an interest in filmmaking in his teenage years. In 2005, he acquired a Bachelor’s Degree in Multimedia from Dundalk Institute of Technology and has been involved with Squid Media Ireland from 2006, eventually going full time into the company in 2008.
