Visited my ex-workplace (Microsoft) and their new shiny building in Leopardstown and got to hug and chat with my favourite peeps with whom I spent loads and loads of hours working and who are still my dear friends + made a party (I DJ’d with my Spotify play list) in the dressing area and got to meet new amazing ladies + chilled out on the rooftop terrace with cakes and latte’s (afternoon tea traditions like back in the days were revived- indeed, indeed) – check ✔️
Ladies Evening at Leopardstown Races – check ✔️
Now on to script editing… It’s past midnight, I know. It’s OK, I’ve got coffee.. Cccccchheeeecck (loading)
Hope you all had a fantastic and productive Friday! Happy weekend!
My example of time well spent.. One day. Two short films made. Amazing banter was had. Literally..
Banter is the name of a short film written by Fabien Oman. A beautiful piece that explores mental health through… well, a bit of a friendly banter. I believe that talking and being open about mental health issues helps. This is why I was really keen to get involved, to spread the word and share it with more people on screen.
Night Out in Killashandra is another short film that we filmed on the same day, last Saturday. I wrote the screenplay for that. Seeing people in a pub or a bar swiping left and right on popular dating apps and not paying attention to the immediate surroundings prompted me to write it. It explores another theme too… To find out, you’ll just have to watch the movie when it’s out.
How did we manage to squeeze production of two short films in one day?
- They were very, very short. 1 minute short to be precise.
- It was a very intense day on set with a very talented bunch of people on both sides of the camera.
