Hello. My name is Sean McGinly. I'm a writer and filmmaker based in Los Angeles.
If by some chance you've arrived here and are looking for "Sean McGinley", the fine
Irish actor, that is not me. There is no 'e' in my last name. I'm told that a great or great,
great grandfather dropped the 'e' when he came to America because he thought it made
him look less Irish. If this is true he must have been really drunk. "McGinly" or
"McGinley". They look equally Irish to me.
I am the Sean McGinly who wrote and directed the film, The Great Buck Howard
(2009), which starred John Malkovich and Colin Hanks. In addition to that film I
directed a documentary called Brothers: Stories of 9/11 (2006). I also wrote and
directed a small independent film called 2 Days (2003), starring Paul Rudd. Most
recently I directed a film called Lawless Range which came out in 2016. You can
actually catch it on Showtime right now. I just finished a film called Silver Lake in
2018, which I wrote and directed. It played at a few festivals and hopefully will be
available somewhere in 2019.
This website is a place for me to go on about myself and to put up some essays I've
written and anything else it occurs to me to throw up here. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
