The Cathedral wins yet another award for sound design. The judges at Tabloid Witch Awards not only awarded the film, but also gave it a great write up. A huge thank you to all at Tabloid Witch Awards and congratulations to Turlough Ó Cinnéide for winning the award.


"The Cathedral is an old-fashioned Irish ghost story with a dash of exorcism. Two priests investigate a haunting in their house, then track its source to the cathedral. Whereupon they must perform the usual exorcism. As with many spook tales, the spirit (or demonic?) manifestations begin small, then rise in intensity. Strange noises, knocking doors when no one is there, moving objects. Some of these lead to clues as to why the spirit is restless, so that the noises become an active part of the story. While the cinematography and visual effects are very good, The Cathedral is a low-key effort that mostly relies on an engaging story and characters, good acting, and a tense atmosphere. A tension that derives largely from the interplay between periods of deathly silence, and small innocent sounds (a dripping faucet), and then loud supernatural noises, some recognisable, some not."

Yet another nomination for Mystic Minnie. It has reached the Quarter Finalist in the Cut International Short Film Festival. That means we now have two films in the Cut International Short Film Festival, Mystic Minnie and The Breaking. This is great news for all involved. CUT International Short Film Festival is the premier festival in New Jersey for short form films. CUT was founded to celebrate storytelling in the medium of motion pictures, but limited to short stories. The short film, like the documentary, has become a great way for a larger group of people to tell their stories. Not reliant on huge budgets, or massive crews, a small group of talented creatives can craft a tale of resonance and authenticity.

Today has been a good day. Actor John Morley is nominated for Best Actor by Couch Film Festival, Marta Di Giovanni for Best Cinematography by Tietê International Film Awards and it has made it to the Quarter Finalist by Cut International Short Film Festival.


The Breaking is our newest production and focuses on the vicious cycle of addiction through a mixture of abstract story telling and Irish folklore. Directed by Turlough Ó Cinnéide this film is set in 1950s Ireland and judges have described it as a tense and compelling film. Well done to the cast and crew!
