Richard Gorodecky is an independent writer, creative director and filmmaker.
As a writer, he honed his storytelling skills for eight years at Wieden & Kennedy, Amsterdam. Then became one of the founders and the creative director of Amsterdam Worldwide, an agency specialising in long-format branded content. During this time, he won over 60 industry awards, including a Cannes Gold Lion, the Grand Prix at Eurobest, and a Silver Effie. His work has been featured in a number of books and publications, and is in the permanent collection of The Museum for Arts and Crafts in Hamburg.
In 2015, Richard wrote, directed and produced The River Man. This documentary earned Critics Choice in The Sunday Times newspaper, was finalist for the Grand Prix and Best Documentary at Cork Film Festival, finalist for Best Short Documentary at Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, and won Best Short Documentary at the Lift Off Film Festival Amsterdam and Sydney. Richard then wrote and directed a branded documentary about the controversial and convention defying founder of Perricone MD. In 2016, he wrote and directed a drama called Little Shit about a lost child’s journey to discover his and London’s hidden nature. Post production was completed in August 2017 will premiere at the London Short Film Festival in January 2018.
Richard freelances as a writer and creative director, is writing a feature, and developing two documentaries. Oh, and he’s also writing a book on idioms. He should probably get more sleep.
LITTLE SHIT (2017)
SYNOPSIS: Paul has an attitude. He’s the kid you cross the road to avoid. The no-hoper you pray your children never become. But there’s more to Paul than meets the eye or the ear. A side that he only finds when he’s truly lost.
Little Shit is a child’s journey to discover his and London’s hidden nature.
“The best short films are like 7” singles - storytelling condensed into a quick-fire snapshot of communication.
And Little Shit is very much a hit.” Colm McAuliffe, Film Curator
THE RIVER MAN. (2015)
SYNOPSIS: Connie Corcoran has dedicated his life to the mighty Blackwater River and, over the years, its currents have shaped him.
He is one of Ireland’s great salmon fishing guides, but if the salmon stocks continue to decline, he may be one of its last.
The River Man is a fated love story between a man and a river.
"Richard Gorodecky's wonderfully shot The River Man is a study of one man's love for a river." Critics Choice, The Sunday Times
PERRICONE MD. PORTRAIT OF A SCIENTIFIC REBEL (2015)
SYNOPSIS: Dr Perricone is a scientific rebel. In the superficial world of beauty he carries the banner of science. To understand the controversial and convention-defying nature of the brand Perricone MD, one has to tell the story of the passion and defiance of its founder and namesake, Dr. Nicholas Perricone.
