Niall Trask GCSE



Niall is an Anglo-American, Suffolk-born film director. His practice is rooted in self-deprecation as a passive aggressive defense mechanism to conceal his insecurities & lack of talent; often focusing on music videos for bands no one has heard of outside South London & making things up on the day of the shoot with a hangover. 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, fulfilling his childhood dreams of learning how best to stick a swab up a Focus Puller’s nose. Niall often feels deeply depressed, feeling that his work is becoming more and more banal as a means of paying rent, whilst being surrounded by Advertising & Marketing executives dressed in Carhartt. One day he will have the balls to become a landscape gardener but until then; you can use one of the links below to hire him.
