El Zorrero Films is the brain-child of Dave Clarke and Ciarán Deeney, set up with the goal of creating projects that they can be truly passionate about. We are an independent production company based in Dublin, Ireland with over ten years experience.
Our work covers a wide range of projects from innovative multi-platform documentaries like Man on Bridge (RTE), to gritty documentary series like Premier Ambitions (Setanta Sports), through to exciting formatted TV series like Pioc do Ride (TG4). Along the way, we’ve produced some of Ireland’s most exciting short films, including Noreen starring Brendan Gleeson and we’ve even made a few award-winning websites while we were at it. Our latest project, feature documentary Mattress Men, follows the re-invention of a group of Irish mattress salesmen in a time of recession. Follow the film on its journey here.
Alongside our work with El Zorrero Films, Dave and Ciarán have produced exciting projects for other production companies, such as the feature film The Guarantee for John Kelleher Media and the Oscar short-listed, SXSW winning animation Coda for the wonderful lads at And Maps And Plans.
