Sean Buckley is a film and television veteran, and the driving force behind Buck Productions, a leading content creation company successful in television, feature films, branded content, documentaries, and commercials. As owner and CEO of one of the most diverse production houses in North America for more than 15 years, Buckley has cultivated a concept-first culture where ideas and end products are paramount.
Throughout his career Buckley has forged strong relationships with top-notched production partners and distribution companies, producing original TV series and feature films. For instance, The 2008 Mitsubishi City Chase (CBC), was the first branded content television series for a major Canadian network; Saw Dogs (OLN, Velocity) was the first series to concentrate on wood chainsaw carvers (two other series on the subject followed later that year); Deals from the Dark Side (OLN, Syfy) focused on genre-popular macabre relic hunting; docu-reality series The Project Guatemala (City) saw privileged youth travel to Central America to build a community centre; and most recently the Canadian Screen Award nominated McMorris & McMorris (MTV, Red Bull Media House, Fusion), a series following snowboarding brothers, Olympic bronze medallist Mark McMorris and his brother Craig. Buckley has also worked numerous digital campaigns including web series Canada’s Best Beauty Talent (Rogers Media and L’Oreal Paris), hosted by Supermodel Coco Rocha and Jamie Kennedy’s Open Kitchen which appeared on Google+.
Buckley is also Chief Content Officer for CineCoup Film Accelerator and collaborated with them on 2014’s feature debut Wolfcop, as well as the upcoming WolfCop 2. Their next project is ComedyCoup where HumanTown will be made into a half-hour special for CBC.
Buck has been recognized as recipients of multiple Gemini, Genie, Canadian Screen Award, and Director’s Guild of Canada nominations as well as a number of other film, television and commercial awards. Buck has also been named on Realscreen’s Global 100 list of independent production companies for the past several years.
