In my debut short film, shot in Dublin, Ireland, in 2011, I took on the role of director and co-producer, working on a script of my own for the very first time. Without any previous experience or any budget but pushed on by the passion to do it anyway, this pilot was an incredible success for me. Yes, I can see the things I would change both in the movie and in the whole production experience (but that'll probably always be the case as I continue on in my career!). Nonetheless, the success came in the fact that I had to deal with many circumstances/issues which left me with many interesting points of learning and gave me the 100% challenge that I was looking for at the time. I learned so much from pre-production to post-production and, most importantly, during this same period, was accepted into film college (Ballyfermot College, Ireland). I hope as I continue to make films that I will always learn from them and improve for the next one, but this film - whether others may consider it good or not - is special for me because it was my first, I made it without any experience of making a film and, more than anything, making it made me realize that this was really what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Description of this pilot:
