Niall Trask GCSE
FUN FACTSNiall is an Anglo-American, Suffolk-born film director. His practice is rooted in self-deprecation as a passive aggressive defense mechanism to conceal either his insecurities & lack of talent or his ego; often focusing on music videos for bands that no one has heard of outside South London & making things up on the day of the shoot. He is 1 of only 6 non-privately educated individuals working in the Brtish film industry. He is enrolled on the NFTS Covid Officer MA, learning how to fulfil his childhood dreams of sticking swabs up Focus Puller’s noses. Quite often Niall feels deeply depressed working in film & feels surrounded by Advertising & Marketing executives in artist’s clothing & wonders why he doesn’t become a gardener or join a cult.
