Tom Burke

 

Tom has been making film and video projects of varying scales and styles for over a decade. Working primarily in the documentary form, he often assumes a shooting director role, and more often than not will be the editor of his own films. At Areaman Productions from 2007 to 2017, Tom was able to mix factual television projects with more aesthetically driven Irish Film Board funded shortform docs. In 2017, he established Broadstone Films in order to pursue his feature documentary and fiction project ambitions. Regardless of format or output medium, the goal is alwaysthe same; telling stories honestly, simply and with respect for those in front of the lens.

In 2018, his feature documentary ‘Losing Alaska’ premiered at the IDFA documentary festival in Amsterdam and is currently touring festivals worldwide. In early 2019, his television documentary ‘Shooting the Darkness’ premiered to critical acclaim in Ireland, France and Germany.

Tom is currently working on a slate of factual projects and is an adjunct lecturer in Trinity College Dublin where he teaches video production on the Interactive Digital Media Masters course.
