FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX
JOHN MOORE (Director) was born, raised and educated in
Ireland. At age ten, he began pursuing what would become a lifelong interest in
still photography. He was a news cameraman, and then worked as an assistant
cameraman in feature films helmed by such acclaimed filmmakers as Neil Jordan
and Jim Sheridan.
When Moore turned to directing commercials, his innovative work,
rich with state-of-the-art special effects, was hailed across the globe. Amongst
his most notable work were spots for Adidas, Guinness and, particularly, SEGA.
Shortly after his 1999 spot for SEGA debuted on the MTV Music Video Awards,
Twentieth Century Fox and Davis Entertainment gave Moore the nod to make his
feature directorial debut on Behind Enemy Lines, an action-adventure starring
Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson.
