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.

 FALLOUT on RTE tonight @10.15pm

By | Blog, Film, Picture, Sound, Vfx | No Comments

“Fallout” is the first documentary that looks at the post prison lives of 4 high profile exonerated prisoners – Paddy Hill (Birmingham 6), Peter Pringle (the last man sentenced to death in Ireland in 1980), Sunny Jacobs (who served 17 years on death row in the USA and is married to Peter Pringle) and Robert Brown (who served 25 years in the UK).

This film explores the mental and physical fallout from their long term incarceration, their day to day struggle for survival, broken family relationships and the poor quality of lives they lead.  It will also highlight their courage and generosity of spirit, as they engage in activism and advocacy for criminal justice reform and human rights, showing up their states by organising help and resources for their fellow victims of injustice.  Underlying the very personal  stories of our four principal characters  is the process of those who are undergoing the programme at the Sunny Center Foundation (run by Sunny Jacobs and Peter Pringle), the work of Paddy Hill’s organization, MOJO and the endeavours of Robert Brown to give talks and write poetry as his way of coping with the pain.

This documentary is a unique take on the mental fallout of years spent behind bars. We connect on a deeply raw and human basis with our characters resulting in an emotional and passionate cry out to be free from the trauma that has enveloped their lives. Leading psychiatrists have described the damage done as being beyond repair. But there is hope and the first residents of the Sunny Center Foundation are evidence that a better life is possible.

Paddy Hill was one of the Birmingham Six, sentenced to life and released as an innocent man after 16 years. His psychiatrist describes him as one of the most mentally scarred cases he has ever come across. He now runs MOJO, the Miscarriages of Justice Organization, to help innocent people in prison.

Robert Brown was sentenced to life for murder in 1977. He was released 25 years later, after it was determined his verdict could not be considered safe. He has spent the years since retreating from a world he doesn’t understand and feels doesn’t understand him.

Sunny Jacobs and Peter Pringle make up one of the most unlikely of unions; that of exonerated death row inmates.  Peter was one of the last men to be sentenced to death in Ireland, convicted of murdering two Gardaí in 1980. He served 15 years.  Sunny Jacobs was sentenced to death, along with her then husband, for the murder of two police officers in Florida in 1976 serving 17 years on Death Row. Both became advocates for human rights, campaigning worldwide against the death penalty.

Produced by Bang Bang Teo and edited by Guy Montgomery, this important and harrowing documentary airs on RTE this Thursday at 10.15pm.

Galway Film Fleadh 2017

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

The never ending rain couldn’t dampen spirits in Galway and it was great to see some of our work being so well received. Huge congratulations to everyone involved.

Departures is a frameworks funded short made by our good friends over in Pink Kong Departures. A tearjerker story about a Nana who finds herself alone at Christmas. Will the universe find a way to reunite her with her family living in Sydney or is she destined to spend the holidays crying into her mince pies?

A Different Kind of Day by director Maria Doyle Kennedy is a beautiful story about 2 teenagers who find themselves in trouble when they are surrounded by a group of bullies. When they are attacked by the gang, their response to the incident changes the day for everyone. A very satisfying twist at the end for the audience.

Neon is a break-neck, cyberpunk action sci-fi set in a future decaying world. A sacrificial population is tasked with carving out a clean passage with neon lights between pockets of surviving civilisation. Directed by Rioghnach Ni Ghrioghair we are positive this is just the beginning of a very bright future for this creative director.

Clondorcha is a horror about a father’s shame after he and his son glimpse something frightening on a lonely, dark road. The film was directed by Ged Murray and produced by David Lester Mooney for Jumper Productions.
