Kode Red: the creative studio

Locky

Locky (A.K.A Lochlainn McKenna) was born in Cork City, Ireland and first met us just down the road in Kinsale having scored a hat-trick of Shark awards that year including the Best New Director gong. 

Since then he’s gone on to win another handful of Sharks and this year has been invited back to judge the music video section. 

His music video for Daithí’s track 'In My Darkest Moments' was shortlisted for a UKMVA and won two Irish YDAs. Another video for the same artist also snagged a Vimeo Staff Pick. 

Commercially he’s worked with brands such as Guinness, Toyota, Heineken, eve Sleep and Sky. 

His work tends to focus on the minutiae of relationships and he strives to tell stories with heart at its core.
