Green Prescription

Filming last week with Cloghan Walking Group for a feature on RTE Nationwide. It’s part of an innovative health scheme, the first of its kind in Ireland, where health providers and the local community team up to help people take effective steps to improve their health. Follow this link to view our film – its the first item on the programme!v=1139030     Pic.

Dublin Vaults

Had an amazing time working with Spanish TV in Dublin last week, filming for a programme called Cuarto Milenio – Fourth Millenium. Its a programme which examines mysterious events and phenomena. We shot the piece in the Vaults of St.Michans Church.


En-route from Addis Ababa to Mekele – 9 flights in 12 days and all of the equipment and luggage made it. Respect to Ethiopian Airways.


Working in in the town of Lalibela in Northern Ethiopia where we were based for two days. We chose this location to shoot what will eventually become the opening to the programme. It was quite early in the morning and very warm. Two days previous to this I was hardly able stand up as a result of a very bad stomach bug and an 8 hour journey by road in the back of a Land Cruiser in blistering heat. Thanks to everyone who looked after me & nursed me back to health and we still managed to film every day.

Georgian Dublin

Just finished the edit on a co-produced programme with RTE  featuring the architecture, fashion and food of Georgian Dublin. This photograph was taken inside 10 Ormond Quay Lower, which is where we filmed.

Playing for Life

I’ve been asked to go to Ethiopia in January to make a film with the Irish Charity – ‘Playing for Life’. Lots of arrangements to follow, but it looks like we’ll be spending about 12 days in various parts of the Country. Thinking already of what kit to bring….and what to leave behind.
