By | Blog, Drama | No Comments
John Connors plays Jay Connolly, a part-time DJ and low level drug dealer in Darndale, an area victimised by gangs, drugs and social problems. When his welfare is cut off he decides it’s time to enter the big leagues with his gang, in order to help settle his family’s debts. His actions attract the attention of Sean Murphy, the son of the local drug king pin, Derra Murphy, who rules Darndale with an iron fist and has no problems eliminating any potential rivals.
Jay knows he’s playing a dangerous game but plans to make just enough money to settle his family’s debts, get out of Darndale, and move to Spain with his pregnant girlfriend. Events spiral out of control when Jay becomes involved with Derra’s wife, and his gang are thrust in to harm’s way, which leaves Jay with a momentous decision to exact revenge, or turn the other cheek.

“The Lost Muslim” documentary series produced by Brown Bread Films has just collected a Sandford St Martin Award in London. The very personal project for presenter Baz Ashmawy was awarded the 2nd prize in the best TV category.
The Sandford St Martin Awards are the UK’s most prestigious broadcast awards for radio, TV and online programmes that reflect religious, spiritual or ethical themes. They are the only awards that welcome entries about any and all faiths.
In the 2-part series, Baz embarks on a personal journey of discovery, hoping to re-embrace his Egyptian heritage and to understand properly for the first time the culture and beliefs of the Muslim faith into which he was born, but which he hasn’t practised since childhood.
This is the third award for Baz Ashmawy and Barry Egan founders of Brown Bread Films. They previously won an IFTA and an international Emmy award for their series 50 Ways to kill your Mammy so it seems like there is no stopping this succesfull production company and we look forward to what’s coming next.
Joanne McGrath directed this two part programme with Guy Montgomery editing. We did all of the picture and sound post production.

Love and Friendship
“Love and Frienship” the fifth film from Oscar winning director Whit Stilman is in cinemas now and is proving very popular with audiences and critics alike. Drawing from Jane Austens two early works, “Lady Vernon” and “Love and Friendship” Stillman wrote and directed the comedy which stars Kate Beckinsale, Oscar Nominated Chloe Sevigny and Stephen Fry. The acclaimed cinematographer Richard Van Oosterhout, a good friend of Eggs from The Legend of Longwood , was DOP and got us involved in the post on this exciting project. With the entire film having been shot in Ireland We handled the assembly edit with editor Sophie Corra and processed the rushes.
Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centers on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale), who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, she plots, schemes and manipulates to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica, with hilarious results.
