Another interesting year nearly over and 2012 hasn’t disappointed. Looking forward to seeing if 2013 can match it.

For what as been a busy year for us there have been a lot of highs. Limerick Insider, now entering its third year on Limerick.ie as gone from strength to strength bringing more and more communities and Limerick events to the website. The Great Southern Trail in West LImerick was a personal favourite along with the my own daughter Ruby starting her acting career in the Magic of Christmas in Limerick (see previous post).

There have been other major events such as ‘The Freedom of the City to Paul O’Connell’ and the 3rd annual LIT Film Festival which saw film makers of all levels visit Limerick and show off their talent. The 4th LIT Film Festival is coming together for April 11th to 13th 2013 and the line up of guest speakers is being worked on as I type. There were other projects such as filming footage of Simon Baker for TV3’s Ireland AM for the ‘Out on a Limb’ project; Producing the DVD for the White Collar Boxing in June, organised by Blue Shinners and Jason Kenny (Forever Fit Promotions); the Limerick Chamber of Commerce Awards night in November; the National Day of Commemoration and achieving both my M.A. in Creative Media Practice and my Avid Media Composer Instructor Certification.

In September we also saw the first Elemental Arts and Cultural Festival in Limerick. I had the honour of helping out the very hard working organisers in the post production of a short promotional video detailing the events that took place on that day. Heres to the second Elemental Festival which should be a high light on the calendar in the coming Autumn.

Behind the Scenes Film Networking group also expanded in 2012 with workshops in professional sound, writing, camera and not forgetting the very successful Film in a Day project where our friends in the George Boutique hotel helped out immensely. We are planning a massive schedule for 2013 and there will be more opportunities for film makers in the MId West region to explore what they can achieve in their diffferent disciplines.

There’s a lot to look forward to and I’m excited to see what opportunities await.
Cya in 2013 and have a Merry Christmas.

Simon.
