JOHN MOORE (Director, Producer) 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, earned him worldwide recognition. 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.
Following the success of his debut, Moore accepted a studio
production/development deal with Fox and started a production company, Point Road. In
2004 he brought to the screen Flight of the Phoenix, starring Dennis Quaid and Giovanni
Ribisi, followed by the remake of the 1970s classic, The Omen, for Twentieth Century
Fox, which opened worldwide on June 6, 2006.
