You wait ages for one and then 2 come along at the same time. Yesterday two separate projects that I’ve worked on ‘dropped’ teaser clips for their forthcoming release.
This weekend sees the broadcast of TV3’s 1916 centrepiece ‘Trial of the Century’. I’ve had a tremendous time editing this series over the past couple of months and I’m terribly proud of it. Firstly its an incredibly well written courtroom drama, which is something I’ve always really wanted to cut and secondly it features some of the premier Irish talent in front of and behind the camera. It was an absolute privilege to work with director Maurice Sweeney and the guys at Loosehorse and Treasure.
The show features some incredible performances, not least Tom Vaughan-Lawlor who is electric as Patrick Pearse. I think people are really going to like it, well I bloody well hope so.
Here’s a trailer the TV3 guys put together for the series.

Also released yesterday was the first short teaser clip from the Mattress Men documentary which we are taking to Toronto next week for HotDocs. I’m unspeakably excited about heading to Canada and seeing this film on the big screen. I’ve yet to see the final graded, mixed film so as you can imagine its something I’m really looking forward to. The lads let this little short clip into the wild yesterday and once again it appeared to ‘break the internet’. People it would seem have quite the appetite for Mattress Mick related news!
Again for more on the film see its page on my website.
Its happened to me in the past where you go months without nothing that you’ve worked on seeing the light of day and then all of a sudden a big burst of activity. Which usually means this oft-neglected blog will also gets a bit attention from me. Watch this space…
