Simon Editing on Kevin Liddy’s ‘The Suffering Kind’

With it’s broadcast premiere on RTE 2’s Shortscreen Monday Night (15th February at 11:40pm), the journey of this intriguing short film is coming full circle. Back in September 2013 director Kevin Liddy contacted me with a hard drive and script under the arm asking if i would take a look at the footage he filmed with DOP Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas, Breakfast on Pluto, In America) in New York.

Shot on 35mm film the approach was to keep to Kevin’s script as much as possible while also allowing the footage to naturally form creative ideas in the edit. Using Avid Media Composer the film was edited over a number of months (some 14-16 passes) while all the time experimenting with Kevin’s vision and Rori Coleman‘s superb music composition.
