Dave Farrell - Managing Director
Tile Media is a dynamic new departure for 'old hand' Dave Farrell who, working alongside Stephen Rooke, built Tile Films into a leading international producer of factual TV programming.
Dave has a long list of credits to his name as producer and sometimes writer/director. Programmes that he has produced which have received Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) nominations include; Ireland’s Nazis (RTE/History Channel), The Ghosts of Duffy’s Cut (Smithsonian Networks) and Death or Canada/Fleeing the Famine (RTE/History Channel), which was also nominated for four Gemini awards in Canada. Cromwell in Ireland, which Dave was an Executive Producer on, won the IFTA award for Best Single Documentary in 2009.
His most recent credits include producing and researching A Terrible Beauty (TG4), Death on the Railroad which he co-directed and wrote (PBS/RTE), The Mystery of the Lost Ship (Channel 5/TG4) and the Tile Media produced TV pilot Jubilee Nurse, which is currently in development.
Colin Farrell - Creative Director
Colin has a wide range of experience in various sectors of the film and television industry having worked in many differing roles over his time in the business. He is also somewhat unusual in having worked both in front of and behind the camera during his career. His background in both music and film is a decided asset for Tile Media, which he joins as Creative Director.
He was a key member of the Art Department team on the 1916 docudrama A Terrible Beauty and has worked in similar roles on other Tile Films productions such as Death or Canada, Cromwell in Ireland (both for RTE/History Channel) and Death on the Railroad (PBS/RTE). He has also worked extensively in location scouting and management on many Irish and large-scale international projects such as The Savage Eye (RTE), Penny Dreadful (Showtime/Sky), King Arthur (Touchstone Pictures) and The Tudors (Showtime).
As an actor, Colin played the role of Frank Shouldice, an Irish Volunteer sniper, in A Terrible Beauty. Other TV acting roles include parts in Jubilee Nurse, The Ghosts of Duffy's Cut, Death on the Railroad, and Clear the Way.
His most recent credit was as Production Manager on the Tile Media produced TV pilot Jubilee Nurse and he has been overseeing the Stories from 1916 project.
Keith Farrell - Writer/Director
Keith is a very experienced IFTA nominated writer, producer and director with a wide range of projects under his belt from straight documentary through to drama and docudrama.
He has just completed work as writer/deirector on Death or Liberty, a major two part docudrama for ABC TV in Australia, TG4 in Ireland and S4C in Wales. Previous directing work includes The Mystery of the Lost Ship (TG4/Channel 5), A Terrible Beauty (TG4), The Fighting Irish of the Civil War (TG4/Smithsonian Networks), Death on the Railroad (RTE/PBS), TV pilot Jubilee Nurse and the IFTA nominated Ireland’s Nazis (RTE/History Channel). Other credits include working as creative producer on the IFTA award winning Saving The Titanic, for which he also developed the original concept.
Based in Manchester, Keith heads up Tile Media's UK office and is currently developing various projects for the company.
