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.

With principle filming completed on the second film of the trilogy, The Apparel, we have now started the post production.

The “training Trilogy”, a brainchild of Film Limerick Project Manager, Ronan Cassidy, has brought together both professional and novice filmmakers to realise the three short scripts created by Limerick’s Dan Mooney, Peter McNamara and Philip Shanahan.

The post production team consists of LSAD Student; Maeve Humphreys, Mark Griffin (LCFE) and Patryk Czekalski (LIT) (Assistant editors) and myself as lead editor. Limerick Institute of Technology is providing the post production facilities for the offline editing. We are using Avid Media Composer 7 with an Avid ISIS 5500 server for storage.

With the first of the three films, Day Off, already in the middle of post production, the team now move onto the more difficult task of managing two at the same time. With the third (Date Night) in preproduction, the team will be soon working on all the trilogy ensuring that the visual and story links are working along with balancing the ideas of three directors and the support of Ronan and Gerry Stembridge.
In the end we will have three great short films of which we can all be proud of, which will also show off to the rest of Ireland that Limerick has talent and locations for professional film making.

More soon.
