Executive Producer | Director
Nial co-founded In Films with Ivan O'Mahoney in 2013. Together they have produced cinematic, gripping and deeply insightful content for Australian and international broadcasters.
Nial is a multi-award winning producer of internationally recognised films. His work on investigative documentaries is ground-breaking, putting cameras where access has never before been granted, as seen in Borderland, the critically acclaimed US series on the US / Mexican border crisis and Hitting Home, the Walkley and AACTA award-winning series from the front lines of Australia's domestic violence epidemic. In 2019, Nial broke new ground with the Walkley award-winning Revelation when criminal trials of paedophile priests were filmed for the first time anywhere in the world. With co-director Sarah Ferguson, they convinced offending priests to participate in a series of extraordinary interviews, including one filmed inside a maximum security prison.
Nial was executive producer on the feature documentary Firestarter: The Story of Bangarra, which won a Rose d'Or and every major Australian film and television award.
Nial is currently producing a major documentary series scheduled for 2023.
