He went on to broaden his portfolio with a Webby award-winning spot for Gatorade starring NFL quarterback Cam Newton, a Webby and Art Directors Club award-winning spot for VW, a Clio award-winning spot for Goodyear, and the Irish Film and Television award-winning short film Wave co-directed with Benjamin Cleary and narrated by Jarvis Cocker. O’Grady-Peyton has also created memorable work for BMW, Asics starring Steve Aoki, and the Gaelic Athletic Games; directed Kayaking the Nile for Red Bull’s original documentary Wildcard series; and was selected for Werner Herzog’s 2018 documentary masterclass in the Amazonian jungle.

“I’ve been really impressed by how m ss ng p eces fosters their talent across such a diverse range of styles and skillsets, and have seen them take many careers to new levels,” said O’Grady-Peyton. “My own style has evolved in recent years as I’ve been embarking on more cinematic work in addition to my documentary background, and I’m confident that m ss ng p eces is aligned with my goals and will be a great partner in this next phase of my career.”
