We are in the final stages of the Offline cut of the Film Limerick Trilogy. The short films, The Apparel, Day Off and Date:Time are now being spotted by the music composers and the final preparations for the delivery to the online and sound mixing team will take place in the coming weeks.
In what has been an ambitious project, realised by Film Limerick Project manager, Ronan Cassidy, and Irish writer and Director Gerry Stembridge, the trilogy of films has brought together both professional and aspiring film makers in Limerick to create a film cultural legacy that will hopefully continue for many years to come.
As editor on the three films, I have had the opportunity not only to work with three new directors and experience their vision for the stories but I have also had the opportunity to train in three assistant editors and give them a practical and first person view of the craft of editing, here at the facilities of Limerick Institute of Technology.
Maeve Humphreys, Patryk Czekalski and Mark Griffin have all worked on scenes for the films as well as give their interpretation and input to the ideas of the films. Similar training opportunities were given on set by Gerry, Ronan and the DOP Paddy Jordan to the different production departments, giving this project its unique selling point for future investment. In some cases the trainees have had other opportunities to work on professional productions around the country which in turn cements the early success of the Film Limerick Trilogy before its even been completed.
As the online post production, grading and sound mixing are nearing, there is a sense of anticipation for the premiere screening of these films by the cast and crew. Also with the impending new academic year in the third level institutions such as Limerick Institute of Technology and Limerick College of Further Education, it is hoped that current and incoming students take advantage of the possible future opportunities that may arise from the back of this project.
Details of the premiere of the trilogy will be made on the Behind the Scenes website HERE.

The production on the final film, Date:Time, of the Film Limerick Training Trilogy has finished. With a tired cast and crew it is now down to the Post Production team to work their magic and deliver the trilogy in the coming months.
A big thank you to everyone who was involved and a big shout out to the film making talent of Limerick in getting behind this ambitious project.

Date:Time, the third of a trilogy of Limerick created short films has begun production in locations around the city, including Steamboat Quay, Brimstone Restaurant and Cafe Noir. With a heavy schedule of three days, the cast and crew are busily in production of this unique script. Directed by Paul Corey (under the watchful eye of Gerry Stembridge) and filmed by Paddy Jordan, Date:Time will complete the trilogy of short films under the Film Limerick Legacy project by Ronan Cassidy (Film Limerick Project Manager) and Behind The Scenes.
Post production which is headed up by Simon McGuire, is nearing completion on the first two films ; The Apparel (Directed by Peter Delaney) and Day Off (Directed by Stephen Hall) and the post for Date:Time will be completed in the coming weeks.
There will be a September Premiere of all the films in a Limerick Venue (to be announced) which will give audiences as well as the cast and crews of all three films a chance to marvel at the hard work put into the project by Limerick Film Makers.

A very positive and informative evening was had at Dolans on the Dock Road on Monday night last (29th June)
With a full house in attendance of film makers, the media and the crews of the Film Limerick Trilogy films, short excerpts of the first two films that are nearing completion were screened along with a panel discussion.
Writer, Daniel Mooney (The Apparel), Director, Peter Delaney (The Apparel) and Director, Stephen Hall (Day Off) gave a in-depth insight to their experience of working on the unique Film Limerick project answering questions from Film Limerick Project Manager Ronan Cassidy and members of the audience.
With the third film ‘Date:Time’ to go into production on July 22nd, this event has generated a positive vibe with the cast and crew, giving them a clear idea of how the films are progressing and the advantages of working on the Film Limerick project.
Also mentioned were the two Bursary films, Lost and Found and The Clockmakers Dream. Both of which received €15,000 each through the Limerick City of Culture 2014, Film Limerick and Behind The Scenes, and are in the final stages of post production. The teaser trailer for Lost and Found was screened also which stars many local and familiar Limerick Acting talent. This trailer can be viewed below.
Behind the Scenes would like to again thank all who worked, volunteered or simply supported the trilogy project and look forward to the completion of the final film and the premiere of all three at a date in September 2015.

Today marks the start of a possible historic journey for the Limerick Film Industry. Announced this morning from Limerick City and County Council was the deal to purchase the former Dell building in the Plassey Technological Park for the use of creating a Film Studio.
Here is the formal Media Release detailing the deal and what it means:
LIMERICK CITY AND COUNTY COUNCIL AGREES PURCHASE OF FORMER DELL SITE TO FACILITATE PROPOSED MAJOR INTERNATIONAL MEDIA HUB
Media Release, Monday, 25th May 2015
LIMERICK, IRELAND- Limerick City and County Council has announced that it has agreed terms on the purchase of a 350,000 sq foot building in Plassey as part of its strategy for infrastructural development. It is proposed that the building will house a major international media hub to facilitate the production of film and television content and to provide support services.
The local authority remains in discussions with Ardmore Studios, Ireland’s top Film and Television Studios, for the provision of much needed studio infrastructure for the Mid-West.
The proposed location of the international studio which the Council has purchased in the region of €5-6m is a former industrial building on Plassey Park Road in Limerick, approximately 25 acres in size with 7.5 acres of development land available and 750 car spaces.
A former manufacturing facility, it was leased successfully and visited by thousands as ‘The Culture Factory’ venue for Limerick City of Culture 2014.
Welcoming the news, Limerick City and County Council Chief Executive Conn Murray said the purchase is ‘an important step in the local authority’s plan to create an international film centre and major sustainable employment in Limerick’.
“Our discussions with Ardmore Studios are continuing at pace since we first announced that we were working together late last year,” Mr Murray said. “We’re delighted that subject to finalising details, we have agreed terms on the purchase of the former Dell building in Plassey. The purchase of this building is the first step in our strategy to create major studio facilities in Limerick. The next part of the process is to finalise our discussions with Ardmore Studios. We have been encouraged by the response to this initiative.”
Mr Murray said he is hopeful that the purchase of the building will lead to major sustainable employment and the creation of a new film industry in Limerick.
“There is a clear and urgent demand for large scale studio space and support buildings in Ireland, and many of the pre-conditions necessary for the creation of studios already exist in Limerick,” he added.
“It is evident that success is based on government support, direct investment and commitment given to the vision of those involved. We hope that this is just the start of a project which will create a new industry and a huge number of jobs locally. It’s also a logical legacy of Limerick’s year as National City of Culture 2014 and its bid to become European Capital of Culture for 2020.”
I spoke with Joe Nash of Limericks Live 95FM on Thursday last about the benefits of this deal for the Film Makers and students of Limerick. See Below. (Click on Image to hear sound Grab)

Well another year is over for the Limerick Film Festival and I have now switched my attention back to other projects (Editing the Film Limerick Trilogy Films, Behind The Scenes, LIT Work and the Doctorate)
We had a great festival, with an increase on numbers overall for the guest speakers, screenings and Awards show.
