Warren Mac Carthy’s films engage audiences on a deeper level because they’re authentic and heartfelt. He believes in stories that do more than just entertain:  They need to inform, uplift and leave the viewer wanting to do something different. He’s an adept narrative builder, and has a knack for identifying the core message.

Warren has been directing and producing a variety of films and videos for the past 15 years.  He founded Seed Media in 2014 to focus on building strong narrative films. He has directed for local and international brands such New Media, The Weather Channel, Forbes and Uber, and has directed numerous celebrities like Annie Lennox, Joanne Leffson and Francois Pienaar.

Warren is just as comfortable handling a camera as he is an edit.  He often lights his own sets, and understands the intricacies of just about any camera setup.  As an editor, he’s worked on premier shows like Top Billing and Carte Blanche, and countless music videos; and his TV ads have won awards including Louries and Vukas.  As a senior editor he has managed numerous broadast productions, including award winning Ruk en Riel (Kyknet).

Awards: Silver Lourie (Cell-C “Subtitles”, film editor); Vuka (Best Use of Humor, film editor): “Ruk en Riel”, Best Documentary Series (editor & DP)
