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, which starred John Malkovich and Colin Hanks. I also directed a documentary film called Brothers: Stories of 9/11. And I made a few other films you can read more about in my bio.
Most recently I wrote and directed a film called Silver Lake, which starred Martin Starr, Deborah Ann Woll and Fred Melamed. It played at a few festivals and can be seen now on Direct TV. That’s the poster for it on the right and the trailer can be seen below. Thanks for checking out my site.
