Dugdale is best know for writing and directing high profile music films for artists such as Coldplay, Rolling Stones, One Direction, The Prodigy and of course the seminal concert film Adele Live at The Royal Albert Hall.

His most recent project was a new movie for One Direction. The feverishly anticipated film received a worldwide cinema release and over 10 000 screenings in October 2014.
