About

I’m LOCKY (A.K.A Lochlainn McKenna) - I'm a director and writer from Cork, Ireland.

I started off acting before moving into assistant directing, casting and then producing before eventually finding directing a couple of years ago. 

I’m mostly interested in directing work about humans and how we connect with each other. Stories about: relationships, families, heart-break, survival, courage and love. I’m fascinated by time and how we choose to spend the time we’re given on this planet.
