Kino Geneva is a fantastic event bring professionals and amateurs together to make short films. The event lasts two weeks and over 30 short films are made and then screened at the Alhambra cinema in Geneva.
I was involved in three films all of which were well received. The films are being sent to film festivals at the moment and will hopefully have some more news in 2019.
The big project of 2017 for me was ‘Writing Home’, a feature film that required 6 weeks of on location filming plus some foley recordings. The film is finely acted romantic comedy starring Tony Kelly, Caoimhe O’Malley, Geraldine McAlinden
Apart from the on-screen talent, a group of dedicated individuals worked very hard behind the scenes, and as a result the film won a ‘Learning on Screen’ premier award. Needless to say the sound recording was a big part of its success
I wrote and produced this short romantic film set in coffee shop in Dublin starring Mark Griffin and Karen Killeen about two strangers who fall in love over some sugar cubes. The film did well at festivals at home and in the United States
This is a personal project inspired by my visit to the Normandy beaches where my grandfather landed on D-Day as part of the liberation forces. He had also been evacuated from Dunkirk and retired by the sea — so beaches were a big part of his life
This is the first video that I ever created in support of mental health issues. Every year, in most cities and towns across Ireland a charity walk takes place to raise funds for Pieta House. This event took place on a grey, cold and wet spring morning in Skerries, Ireland
