A Pint With Seaniebee
About This Show
A Pint With Seaniebee is an informal chat with creative folks who have lived, or are living brave, interesting and unconventional lives. We examine how their background and upbringing forged the path they went down; what decisions they took that made all the difference; what ideas they have to change the world in which we live; what life-wisdom they have garnered; and looking back, perhaps what they might change or what advice they might offer up to those following in their footsteps.

Episode 29 - Justin Moore-Lewy has a pint with Seaniebee
6 days ago
Seaniebee is joined today by fellow Dubliner Justin Moore-Lewy, the founding partner of HēLō productions (www.flyhelo.com) – one of the world’s foremost branded entertainment companies that straddles the worlds of advertising, film and brand experience.
A former talent agent at ICM, Justin has also produced over ten movies with the likes of Jeff Bridges and Charlize Theron. He shares with us his cutting-edge views on the future of film production and the screen-trade lessons he has learned in bringing movies through funding to fruition (and why it all boils down to one thing: Hair).
We also hear the fascinating story behind the award-winning Super Bowl commercial for Bud Light, with a crew of 750, 60 cameras and a slew of huge stars, shot over 18 hours in New York. (http://tinyurl.com/z25l8bq)
From shooting Irish motor sport in his teens; through selling dodgy insurance in London; the move to America where he worked in an Irish Bar and how he fortuitously fell into Hollywood; Justin’s amazing journey is testament to the power of drive, bravery, scheming and why the most important character trait for success may just be to have balls like a jockey’s bollix.
Justin’s powerful new movie - A United Kingdom - is released next month. (Watch the trailer here: http://tinyurl.com/jax3gnk )
