King of the travellers TV3 at 9

The film ‘King of the Travellers’ which I edited back in 2012 will have its Irish TV premiere Tuesday at 9pm on TV3. Check it out. Here’s the trailer

Grounded in the traditions of the Irish Traveller community, King of the Travellers follows John Paul Moorehouse on his destructive quest to uncover the truth about his father’s killer. John Paul’s desire for revenge is swayed as he falls for Winnie Power, the daughter of the man he suspects killed his father.
To ensure authenticity in the film, Travellers were cast to play the Traveller roles, many of whom had never acted before. With a nod to the Sergio Leone and John Ford Westerns of the last century, King of the Travellers is an explosive contemporary take on Traveller life.

The Film premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in July 2012 and went on to be nominated for an IFTA for Costume design. It also screened at film festivals in the States and in Scandinavia.

The Film opened in Irish Cinema’s on April 19th 2013 and stayed in the cinema for a remarkable 4 weeks.

Sight and Sound

Earlier this year the film King of the Travellers was released nationwide here in Ireland and in the UK. The release in the Uk meant that the film was reviewed in some of the biggest media outlets in the movie business. Seeing the film reviewed in all the big uk papers was very cool, especially being one of the last films Philip French reviewed in the Observer. As a very big film buff growing up, this meant a huge amount to that part of my make-up. The coolest thing of all though was seeing my name printed in ‘Sight And Sound’ Magazine, the long running BFI monthly magazine. I was really thrilled with it.
