Baz and Nancy’s ‘Holy Show’ airs Wednesday @9.35pm on RTÉ One

By | Blog, Factual, Picture, Sound | No Comments

Devoutly Catholic Nancy is about to set out with Baz on the ultimate adventure. A quest for the Holy Grail: to see Pope Francis at the Vatican. In Rome, mother and son navigate the infamous traffic in a tiny Renault (Pope Francis’ car of choice) as Nancy remains steadfastly unimpressed with the world’s richest cultural legacy.

This is above all, a warm-hearted and good natured adventure, but there’s a more profound side to this journey too. The prospect of an audience with the Pope is genuinely special to Baz’s mum. Meeting Pope Francis is no laughing matter. Nancy is a woman of faith and, as she shares her own personal beliefs and certainties, we’ll see a side that she’s never shown before.

Whether Baz and Nancy meet the Pope or end up back home at Christmas watching ‘Urbi Et Orbi’ on the tellybox, Baz and Nancy’s Holy Show will be the the strangest, warming,  accidentally revealing, momentarily profound and downright hilarious festive offering you’ll see this Christmas.

Trauma, Episode 1, Tonight RTÉ2, @ 9.30pm

By | Blog, Factual, Picture, Sound | No Comments

Trauma is a four-part documentary series on RTÉ2 giving viewers an unprecedented insight into the high pressured, outstanding and skilful work carried out in the intense world of trauma and medical emergency in Ireland. From Emergency Department staff to surgeons, nurses and intensive care specialists – a chain of people who deal with cardiac arrests, head injuries, road traffic accidents and workplace incidents.

The series focuses on four hospitals and the incredible work carried out by the medical staff: cardiac and spinal trauma in The Mater Hospital, neuro-trauma in Beaumont Hospital; emergency care in St. Vincent’s Hospital and orthopaedic trauma and emergency in the Adelaide and Meath (Tallaght) Hospital. We also see staff from the National Ambulance Service and the Dublin Fire Brigade as they operate the 999 emergency call centres, the very first port of call in the chain of the teams dealing with these specialised cases.

In each episode we follow the progress of several patients – from admission to hospital – to as close to the end of their medical treatment as possible – following each step of their medical care along the way. We have interviewed staff who talk intimately about working in such an adrenaline fuelled environment. The patients and their families also talk reflectively about their experience.

Episode 1 airs tonight so make sure to tune in. All post production love added right here in EGG.

Good Vibrations

Good Vibrations, Thursday, May 25th, 10.15 PM, RTÉ One
Good Vibrations is an inspiring and insightful documentary exploring the life and work of Orla O’Sullivan from Cork, a Deaf and Visually impaired piano and keyboard teacher to deaf and hearing students.
While Beethoven became deaf in adulthood, Orla was only six weeks old when she became profoundly deaf as a result of receiving life-saving medication given to her for pneumonia. This makes Orla’s achievements even more extraordinary. Even though Orla uses hearing aids, these don’t allow her to hear all of the frequencies so she feels and ‘hears’ music through vibrations, which are then interpreted by the brain.
In this fascinating observational documentary directed by Edel O’Brien for Firebrand Productions, The award winning company behind Bully proof and Autism and Me, and edited by Guy Montgomery, we explore Orla’s personal story, her monumental achievements and her determination to make music accessible to all deaf people.
My ambition is to make it possible for anyone to learn, play and enjoy piano and keyboard to the highest standard”.
Egg completed all of the post production for this one off documentary, with sound by Colm Mullally, Grading by Nikolas Panteris and Online editing by Alan Sullivan.

By | Blog, Factual, Picture, Sound | No Comments
Autism and Me is a one-off documentary giving a rare insight into Autism, a condition often misunderstood. Through the personal testimonies and experiences of Irish children, teenagers and young adults on the spectrum we are afforded a rare opportunity to see life from the perspectives of those living with autism.
We hear directly from a range of diverse and engaging participants about what living with autism is like and about how they feel they are perceived by the rest of the world. Among the participants is autism advocate, Adam Harris, 22, who has Asperger’s Syndrome. Drawing on his own experiences, Adam has set up AsIAm, an organisation that supports people with autism and educates the public about the condition. Niamh Biddulph who at 19 strives each day to become an independent adult and dreams of going to college and having a family. Hughie Malone, 11, wonders what all the fuss is about? Why is society obsessed with the words like “disorder” and “normal”? And Fiacre Ryan aged 16 who is non verbal. Since his parents discovered an experimental method of communication called RPM in 2013, Fiacre has at last found a way to express his thoughts and feelings. His revelations continue to astonish his family and school.
This touching and inspiring documentary is directed by Liam McGrath, edited by Gretta Ohle and Produced by Christine Thornton and Mark Warren with Firebrand Productions. We handled all of the picture and sound post production with sound editing by Katie O’Mahony, Dubbing mixing by Aza Hand, Nik Panteris graded the documentary and the online editing was by Alan O’Sullivan.
Autism and Me is on RTE One on Monday 13th March at 9.35pm and will shortly be available on the RTE player for a limited time.

DEAFENING – Thursday 2nd March, 10:15PM, RTE One
Deafening challenges the viewer to experience the world through the eyes of four Deaf people with uniquely different lives.
RTÉ News & Weather presenter and expectant mother of twins, Sarah Jane Moloney O’Regan loves being Deaf but despite this, she worries about what her twins will go through if they’re born Deaf and have to face the same barriers she had to work so hard to overcome. Deaf siblings, Jade and Matthew Visser, 12 and 14, share their concerns about fitting into a mainstream school, the challenges of making friends and how sparring deaf in Taekwon-do puts them at a distinct advantage. Seán Herlihy a teacher at a Deaf school in Dublin, has been to 81 countries and in any corner of the globe he can meet another Deaf person and communicate fluently in sign language.  In his view, its hearing people who are at a disadvantage when it comes to travel.
Through its carefully designed sensory landscape, it challenges the audience to rethink their perception and understanding of sound. Egg’s Aza Hand did the sound design and mix on this ground breaking show.
It was produced by Anne Heffernan with Mind the Gap Films and Directed by Garry Keane and will be broadcast on RTÉ One on Thursday March 2nd at 10:15 pm.
