[12]

In 2014, Jibson co-wrote the independent film The Lighthouse, based the tragic story of the Smalls Lighthouse in 1801. The Lighthouse is the story of two Lighthouse keepers, Thomas Howell and Thomas Griffith who were stranded on The Smalls Islands, a small cluster of rocks approximately 20 miles (32 km) west of the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales. Jibson also starred as Thomas Howell opposite Welsh actor Mark Lewis Jones.[13] The feature film was written and then selected by the Welsh Ffilm Cymru emerging talent scheme Cinematic and awarded a budget of £300,000 in conjunction with the British Film Institute (BFI), BBC Films, S4C and Soda Pictures. The film received a cinematic release in Wales and was released on DVD and VOD in 2016 in the UK, receiving positive reviews. " The Lighthouse is a welcome beacon of quality in a genre often happy to rely on cheap tricks and easy scares and offers so much more, amply rewarding those who are willing to embrace its blunt and brittle world" – Starburst[citation needed]. It was nominated for five Welsh BAFTAS (including best film), winning one for VFX.

Television work

Jibson's television work includes Phamer McCoy in the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards winning 2012 US miniseries Hatfields & McCoys, directed by Kevin Reynolds and starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton, BBC Four film Burton & Taylor, alongside Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West; The Thirteenth Tale starring Vanessa Redgrave and Olivia Colman – both for the BBC, Tubby and Enid, directed by Victoria Wood for the BBC, Father Brown BBC and Galavant for ABC.

In 2015 Jibson received rave reviews for portraying the English military officer Myles Standish in Saints & Strangers, a US TV movie for the National Geographic Channel and Sony Pictures. The Hollywood Reporter reviewer wrote: "The mini's MVP, however, is Michael Jibson as the Pilgrims' iconic military adviser, Myles Standish. His commanding performance strikes just the right balance between the mythical and the credible, as if he somehow instilled an animatronic Disneyland automaton with a stirringly virile essence".[14] Saints & Strangers chronicled the real story of the Pilgrims, including their harrowing voyage from England to America aboard the Mayflower and settling in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It was directed by Paul A. Edwards.
