Clematis armandii won't like deep shade.
Hedera IS a good option ( despite your reaction to the suggestion ). You can get the variegated ones - either large or small leaf ) which make an excellent and fairly quick screen and your wildlife will thank you for it too.
Hydrangea petiolaris is also a shade lover but there is "shade" and "Deep Shade".......only you will be the best judge of that.
Vinca major will also do well in shade but will need to be tied in to get a "climbing" effect. Lonicera will do in shade but you need the right one...few will be at their best in full shade.
