Multimedia commission celebrating the centenary of Austin Stack’s Hurling & Football Club. The club originally known as The Rock, was formed in 1917 and renamed in 1933 after the Irish Republican Austin Stack. The project involved producing new videos, interviews and photography-based pieces while developing assets from existing footage & photos, culminating in an online collection showcasing the history, community and spirit of this famous Tralee institution. www.stacks100.ie
TG4 Joe Lios Tuathail
While filming a piece for the Dingle Film Festival, I first met Joe Murphy – director of St John’s Theatre in Listowel, Co. Kerry. I was instantly hooked by his vibrant personality; with Joe walking in on filming telling us about how he had spent the past hour chasing a bullock around the field at his farm! It’s a pleasure to meet someone so immersed in the arts, but on the other hand is equally plugged into his farm and farm life. I then pitched a documentary about Joe to TG4, which was immediately commissioned, resulting in the very entertaining “Joe Lios Tuathail” TG4 Cogar Documentary.
National Circus Festival, Tralee
A small taster of the amazing National Circus Festival run by Con ‘Fanzini’ Horgan every November in Tralee. Brilliant weekend that includes the juggling convention, three shows in Siamsa Tire with 7 or 8 top quality Circus acts from all over the world, a festival club this year that starred Jerry Fish and the highlight of the weekend the Saturday night Renegade.
Rianta is aTG4 arts program.
This is a simple piece I did showing the work of Róisín Ní Chionnfhaolaidg. The visuals are perfectly complimented by the music of Mick Flannery.
