Some of the work we have completed for clients.
The final season of our archaeological excavations at Ferns in County Wexford this year (2023) finished with a wrap party and open day full of community outreach workshops, games, tours and talks. We were there to capture some of the final days and create this film for them to showcase the great work completed.
Earlier this year we were asked by Screen Wexford to help in a training program for new filmmakers. The brief was to complete a mini documentary about our local Lifeboat station at Fethard on Sea. So on a tight schedule and some inclement weather we managed as a group to finish this short doc that the lifeboats will use to help recruit for their volunteer crews. All the best work is completed when teams of people come together to collaborate and share ideas.
A film we created for the Springmoves Festival 2022. An amazing array of talent on show in Wexford Town and The National Opera House. The festival brings a mix of dance genres together in one place for young and old to experience. Seeing the breakdance from above in the Opera House is a must!
Early in the summer of 2022 we were commissioned to create a video case study about the work being carried out by Wexford Local Developments SICAP programme (The Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme). The programme aims to tackle poverty, social exclusion and long-term unemployment through local engagement and partnership between disadvantaged individuals, community organisations and public sector agencies.
We were blown away by the people we met during this project and we are very proud of the final film.

A unique collaboration between musicians from Ireland and Spain exploring dance tunes and songs from parallel traditions. Recorded 11 - 16 July, 2022 at Enniscorthy's Presentation Arts Centre. The project was funded by The Arts Council Ireland. We were blown away by the talents of these 5 amazing musicians. Enjoy!
Wildsong Ensemble is an experimental choir led by Laura Hyland. On Bloomsday 2022 they performed for the first time publicly as part of a celebration of James Joyce's Ulysses in Greenacres, Wexford Town. We were delighted to have been asked to capture the event and create a film of their first performance.
A great event run by Wexford Credit Union. We got asked to film a short highlights style video to showcase the night run. Its a 5km road race that takes place at night in Wexford Town. It is run for charity and is supported widely by local business from all around Wexford.
We were invited to create a short film for the Rathmulen Film Fest 2 minute challenge. Due to time constraints we had only one day to write, shoot and edit our short film Under Pressure. Huge thanks goes to both Lydon Brodie Hayes and Willow Brodie Hayes for two amazing performances.
The ‘Seeds to Success’ video series features six local community growing initiatives of varying types and stages of development across Co. Wexford. A sharing of community growing experience. In the series we get a chance to meet some of the growers themselves, and find out what they get out of the growing experience. Just as they seed-share in the gardens, these growers share their knowledge and experience with us too. you can see the full series on the Healthy Wexford Youtube Channel.
Through November 2021 to March 2022, the Irish Forest Owners were busy running a webinar series in conjunction with the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. They commissioned us to create 12 films from around the country to accompany the series. We visited some amazing locations and filmed with fantastic people.
A project that is close to both our hearts after watching it evolve over many years. This documentary is about a phenomenal archaeological project in the Southeast of Ireland that involves a bunch of international students, an amazing back story and a ambition to bring the past back to life by rebuilding what is being found at this Archaeological Dig. Huge thanks to our long time clients the Irish Archaeology Field School.
It's Science Week 2021 and we were commissioned by the Wexford Science Café to produce a film about changing your mind based on evidence. We were fortunate enough to get to film with 10 great minds from geneticists and immunologists to comedians, journalists and environmentalists. They all had one thing in common, they changed their minds following new scientific data. Check it out.
The Offaly Heritage office invited us along to make a short documentary about an intriguing place in a what might be the smallest parish in Ireland. Seir Kieran in Clareen County Offaly is a gem in the most unlikely of places. The story of not only this monastic site but also of the people of this tiny parish will stick with us for years to come.
The Irish Heritage School in Birr Co. Offaly approached us to produce a short documentary about their attempts to discover the The Black Castle. The Black Castle was a medieval castle in the grounds of the current Birr castle owned by the Rosse Family.
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!
