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.

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.
