Hosted by The Irish Screen Editors Guild (ISE) and the team at Element Post, ISE members were treated to Editor Tony Kearns’ presentation of his contribution to the Emmy winning Black Mirror interactive film Bandersnatch.

Detailing the challenges involved in a complex interactive narrative and the resulting workflow, Tony described how he and his team worked with the multiple timelines needed to maintain the different choices the user can make on the meta narrative.

The Leamy School on Hartstonge St, Limerick where the Frank McCourt Museum has been housed.

With the recent closure of the Frank McCourt Museum in Limerick, we were on site to record images of the museum as well as an emotional interview with the museum’s curator and founder Una Heaton.

Containing stories of the foundation of the Museum, the many national and international visitors, the unveiling of the bust of Frank by his wife Eileen and family, Una retells her journey and ultimately the very difficult decision to close the doors for the last time. ‘Tis…the end, also frames the many artefacts, the classroom, bedroom and kitchen reconstructions in the legacy this great museum has given to Limerick over the years.

‘Tis…the end, a short documentary, is available below to watch.

The post-production of this short documentary was completed using Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve, using archive footage of the museum filmed over a ten year period.
