In June I was B-cam operator on a video for Cycle Ataxia. A charity cycle for a great cause. I got to shoot from the top of a crane that had been used in Game of Thrones. Ok, not a big deal, but I’m taking it. 🙂

Anthony Downes was A-cam operator and editor.

Testimony Short Film – Crowdfunding Now!

A short film I was Director of Photography on, “Testimony”, is a hard-hitting drama, inspired by true events that took place in Poland in 1991. Adapted as an Irish story, with all-Irish award-winning cast and crew, the film was shot in late February and is now crowdfunding to cover post-production costs.

Writter & directed by Kamila Dydyna, produced by Eamonn Tutty and Cara Bamford, the film features two Game of Thrones actors (Neill Fleming & Barrington Cullen), Clodagh Downing, whose short film “Patsy Dick” was screened during Cannes Film Festival in 2013, as well as Hilary Cotter (The Tudors) as the Judge.

Check out the film’s crowdfunding campaign and help if you can! http://igg.me/at/testimony

 

2015 Projects

The year is just starting and it’s going to be a busy one!

I’m working closely with Bankhouse Productions on several music videos and corporate work, and shooting a short film “Testimony” in February.

I’m also writing my own horror short and my first feature: a grind house / action / horror / comedy / revenge / mutant monster / car chase movie. Stay tuned!
