So the final of the Film limerick Trilogy; Date:Time, screened on RTE 2 last night and is now available on the RTE Player. This marks the end of the journey for me on these three films as editor. The goals of this project have been achieved and there is much to be proud of by all the cast and crew involved.

The hope now is that the legacy will continue and not be dismissed. If the films encourage more film making in limerick then mission accomplished.

I for one am looking forward to the next batch of films to be produced and hopefully we can expand the talent to meet the demands of Troy Studios and other ventures in the future.

Whats Next?!

After a number of months in planning, production and postproduction the news that came in, that one of the Film Limerick Trilogy has been successful in selection to this year’s Galway Fleadh has given a boost to all who worked on it. From the writer Peter McNamara, (who has been busy with other projects state side, namely ‘Narcan’ (coming soon)) to the director Stephen Hall, (also busy with other projects that have screened home and abroad), the crew of the film and the Behind The Scenes team  (namely Mark Griffin who went above and beyond for the project) this acknowledgement by the Fleadh is something special, inspiring and encouraging.

The scope of the Film Limerick project was not for the faint hearted. To bring the three stories together with three writers and three directors took organising and at times needed a delicate professional hand to harmonise everything together and allow the interweaving of the narratives, characters and locations of Limerick city to compliment each other. Project mentor Gerard Stembridge and project manager Ronan Cassidy brought all this together and with the support of the Limerick City of Culture, Behind the Scenes, Limerick 2020, Limerick Institute of Technology. Even though ‘Day Off’ was the only one of the three selected this by no means is a reflection on the other two films of the trilogy, ‘The Apparel’ and ‘Date:Time’. The same amount of hard work, dedication and attention to detail was given to all three and the fruits of the labour of all cast and crew involved can be seen in every shot and piece of sound. This was certainly evident when all three had their cast and crew screening at the Limerick Film Festival back in April to an audience of nearly two hundred.

As editor on the trilogy, i’m taking great pride in the effort from everyone’s talent and patience with these films. I would encourage everyone to take a look at all three when ever you get a chance to see the film making talent that is growing in this city and region. They need the support and encouragement to continue their passion and goals. Film in Limerick needs to be supported now and into the future, whether the Limerick 2020 bid is successful or not… culture is not just for one year it’s for life and the Film Limerick Project has been only one part of many available by different groups and individuals in the city. It has achieved its goals set way back between the Limerick City of Culture 2014 team and Behind the Scenes. Regardless of people’s difference of opinion of each other, the trilogy films… all films… created in Limerick should not suffer… it is our creativity,… our art,… our culture and long may we continue to practice!

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.

Keep an eye of the Behind The Scenes Website (Click HERE) for details of the premiere in the Autumn as well as further updates on all of the Limerick City of Culture / Film Limerick funded films.

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.

Keep an eye out over the next few days for the film crew in the city.
