Shore attended the National Film School in Dublin, Ireland. He graduated in 2006 winning the Royal Television Society Award for Best Student Drama for his short film, The Draft which he wrote, directed, and produced. Also in 2006, the Cannes International Advertising Festival nominated Shore for the prestigious Young Director Award. In 2009, he produced a faux film trailer, a science-fiction horror short film, The Cup of Tears. This short led to a bidding war in 2010 resulting in a deal with Working Title Films to develop a feature version.
