O'Grady-Peyton cites Hey Wonderful's "clear plan of action" as his reason for signing, coupled with the outfit's "boutique, hands-on approach" to production. While the Irishman weighed up Hey Wonderful's offer, their Executive Producer Sarah McMurray was busy admiring his reel.
McMurray says: "TJ's work has a truly special combination of stunning visuals and authentic performances that resonate far beyond their screen time. His lighting and camera movement feel so distinct and striking, but most importantly are always used to enhance his storytelling."
Such qualities are evident in O'Grady-Peyton's 2013 spec film for Adidas. Entitled ‘Super', the ad offers a heightened portrayal of boxing potential through steely performances, playful visual effects, and wry humour.
Off the back of this superhuman training session, O'Grady-Peyton continues to flit between TVCs, short films, and documentaries. He now hopes Hey Wonderful's "blend of professionalism, experience, and personality" can steer him towards even more success.
