Bleak Paradise is a 50-min film by director Helen Selka. It traces the lives of the inhabitants of Long Island, Co Cork, looking at the day-to-day concerns, activities and memories of these individuals, most of whom were born on the island.
I worked on post-production on the film as Sound Editor and Mixer. The film was premiered in May 2014 at the Fastnet Film Festival. Also cut from related footage was an associated complimentary short film “The Polling Station”.
The Polling Station was shortlisted for Best Documentary at the Fastnet Short Film Festival Competition 2014.
UPDATE The Polling Station got a mention in the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/10866303/Grassroots-that-rattle-the-world-of-culture.html
