In the spirit of the most popular and most celebrated Irish holiday - St. Patrick's Day - we went out to one of the main streets in Galway to ask people "When are they at their most Irish...?". And here is the amazing result!!

I've been working on this cinematic short for a few months now. Once I heard the speech "If Money Were No Object" by Alan Watts. I knew I could relate to it and try to capture cinematic shots that would correspond to the speech.
So whenever I found free time in between college and work I was out filming, planning or location scouting shots. The majority of the sunny shots have weeks in between them. Any other filmmaker in Ireland will tell you the weather is never on your side when you need it. It was tough at times. I couldn't help but feel like a one man army sometimes. It really goes to show that a crew would be a help, even a crew as little as two people would be a huge help. It was still a great feat working on this project. Anyway that's enough talking for now, have a watch and let me know what you think.
