Would like to share a little gag reel piece some of the crew and myself did for a wrap party in 2006.

Filmed on location in Ryan’s Pub (Jacksie’s Bar) in Killoskully, Co.Tipperary, and re-edited for the repeat of the series on RTÉ One (Sundays at 8pm) and the RTÉ Player.

We had great fun filming this and trying to recreate the scene, characters and filming style of the original programme. Thanks to; Francis Ryan (playing Jimmy), Mark Murray (Dan) and Kevin Zemrowsky (Timmy) for playing their parts and for all the other crew who helped set it up.

Had the pleasure of filming and editing this package for the Hospitality Training & Education Centre, where some of the shots featured on the RTÉ programme, “Ireland On Call’ on Tuesday 21st April.

The package highlights the fantastic work by the centre with the Volunteer learners, who are providing high quality meals for the front line workers across the mid-west.

The operation has also seen significant support from businesses in the region and beyond. Bernadette says: “The support we have gotten has been fantastic. Irema Ireland in Kilmallock supplied the face masks for all our food production and delivery staff. Delivery containers were supplied by Noel O’Connor of Pat O’Connor Butchers, along with plastic crates from Richardson’s Foods and wooden trays from Pat The Baker. Paul Cross Sharpening Services, based in Rathangan, County Kildare, provided uniforms and protective clothing for deliveries. And, Pallas Foods even provided us with Easter eggs for all the food deliveries going out over the Easter weekend!”

 

Responding to the launch of the new initiative, Bedelia Collins, COVID-19 Co-ordinator of Resources and Service Offers, HSE Mid West Community Healthcare, says the service is very welcome: “Bernadette and her team have been so professional and so easy to work with, which is just what’s needed at the moment. The flexibility that’s been offered with the service is great, especially with the transporting of meals to the different locations in the region. Staff are really touched and very grateful. They are delighted with the quality of food. We started with almost 100 meals on Thursday and expect this to increase significantly in the coming days.”

Despite the poor weather this morning, an enthusiastic audience of editors, students and film makers were present at screen 4 of the LightHouse Cinema, Smithsfield in Dublin. The effort was made to have a rare opportunity to listen to film editor Úna Ní Dhongháile in conversation with fellow editor and director Declan McGrath (Reign of Fire, Killinaskully, Fairytale of Kathmandu, Lomax in Éirinn).

Úna shared her knowledge and insights across her impressive editing career in both film and television. An IFTA and BAFTA-winning Editor, Una is currently working with director Kenneth Branagh, and has a long list of credits including All is True, The Crown, Stan and Ollie, BBC mini-series Les Misérables, and Irish feature film Rosie, along with Three Girls, The Missing, Doctor Who and Ripper Street.

Declan McGrath, an accomplished editor himself, quizzed Úna on a number of the high profile projects and how the path to editing was formed for her.  We were told of how she studied Film & Media in D.I.T Aungier Street, were she turned her attention to editing, studying the craft for three years at the National Film and Television School, IADT.

Specially selected clips of her work were screened and talked about in detail, including a opening well paced scene to Les Misérables, a high tension scenes from Three Girls, a comedic timing piece of the Laurel and Hardy biopic Stan & Ollie starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly and ending on a sample of the visual effects composition to The Crown. Declan guided Úna to give the editing audience an insight to the complex editing world in which she has mastered over the past 20 years ending with a quick Q&A.

The new series of The Crown will be released in the coming months.
