Some of the work we have completed in 2020
The Barntown Heritage Group in Wexford Ireland needed a video to help their Go Fund Me project in which they are trying to save a castle not too far from our studio. We were glad to jump into gear at short notice and produce this short video for them. You can check out their project here.
is a poem written by a young Wexford poet named Jack Matthews. He wanted to remember the victims of the 1920 tragedy in Croke Park. Chris and I in starting Crannóg Media both agreed it was important to help and nurture young talent whenever we could. This is one of those projects. We think jack has a big future ahead of him.
Failte Ireland commissioned us to make a short film for the Irish National Heritage Park in County Wexford. We took on the writing, pre-production, production and post production of the entire project all in-house. Unfortunately neither of us can compose music so we brought in the services of Liam Bates and boy did he do a great job on the music. The film can be seen in the visitors centre at the Park or by clicking the play button to your right.
In March 2020 during the Lockdown RTE approached us and asked could we produce some children's content as part of their Home School Hub. They wanted some short, fun, history pieces that could be viewed virtually on the RTE website. We produced nine episodes of what we called HPD 20, it spanned Irish History from the stone Age to the Norman Invasion.
We took a trip to Wales earlier this year as part of the Celtic Routes project. Wexford County Council asked us to make a Vlog style video of our trip to Wales and find out a little about the connections between Wexford and Pembrokeshire. We enjoyed this one!
A couple of years ago the Irish National Heritage Park in Wexford began running craft course at the park. They asked us to produce a series to highlight the crafts people who would be running the classes. We produced a series we called "Meet the Makers" We made 11 episodes in total.
Laura Hyland, a musician and Guy Urbin, a blacksmith put on a beautiful show in Wexford entitled Sounding Seams. It was a Sonic and sculptural exploration of metal. It was funded by Creative Ireland and the Wexford County Council's Art Dept. we were delighted to be asked to create this short film about the night.
