Fionn heads up the production and post production team at XCM, Amazon’s mass advertising and brand team in London. He started out working on short films after arriving in London from the Emerald Isle over ten years ago. He still remains excited and passionate about the genre, actively supporting those producing shorts. He produced his first feature in 2016 (Twice Shy), the same year he began producing at Amazon.

Fionn Greger
I was born in….
Cork, Ireland

I now live in…
London, England

But if I could live anywhere, it would be…
by the sea, preferably somewhere warm.

Right now, I’m binge-watching…
a 9 month old baby not sleep, season 2.

The last track I listened to was…
Orchestrated Incident by Gramatik

I dream about…
how I can make a real difference in the world.

The app I couldn’t survive without is…
Night Sky (to locate the stars and planets nightly).

Social media is…
a distraction.

When we can travel again, I’ll be heading to…
Donegal, on the west coast of Ireland.

The most important lesson I’ve learned in 2020…
resilience and the importance to have it and understand it.

The best/worst thing about lockdown was…
Best was spending more time with family.
Worst thing was not being on set, once.


What the film industry needs is…
more support for up and coming film makers in terms of funding and support,

What I wish I’d known when I was starting my career…
Get a mentor to guide and support you along the journey.

The best advice I’ve ever been given…
more a film quote than advice given to me… “You, me, or nobody is gonna hit you as hard as life. But if ain’t how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”

The film I wish I’d made…
Lost in Translation

My biggest inspiration is…
my best friend.

The person I would canonise is…
I’m not a religious person.

If I wasn’t a producer ... I’d be…
sitting on a bar stool somewhere.

My last meal would be…
BBQ sea bass, BBQ corn on the cob, BBQ sweet potatoes

My life philosophy in three words…
Enjoy the ride.
