The site will allow you to view the short films but also to mix and edit them online. We’d love to see the new versions of the movie here so send us your remixes!

Note: the feature film is 48 minutes long and may take a while to download on some internet connections. Time to make a cup of tea.

Daniel O’ Hara’s ‘Birth to Earth’

Daniel has sent us in his short film ‘Birth to Earth‘.

“It was a pleasure to be involved in this unique project.

My idea was to acknowledge those for whom the date 26/6/08 as most significant – those born and those who died on that day. Not as much fun as ‘Shamrockfield’, I admit, but I hope you enjoy it all the same!”

Daniel’s production company, Dough productions also have a brand new website! You can watch their short films ‘Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom‘ and ‘Fluent Dysphasia‘ as well as a clip from their TG4 series ‘Paddywhackery‘. The site was designed by Anne O’Hara.

Thanks Daniel for this piece. I found it moving and beautiful.

What the film makers do when not making this movie

In the case of Jessie and Sue, Rachel Rath and a certain Andrew McAvinchey on camera, they make short films like this!

Although not part of the 4daymovie project, you can see they had fun. The Athenrides was part of the IFB’s Virtual Cinema scheme and premiered at this year’s Darklight Festival.

More comments about Dublin: The Movie

There’s been some great feedback about the process and the first screening which took place on Sunday – here’s what some of the participants had to say:

Nicky Gogan, Darklight Festival Director:

Hi everyone, you should all be really proud, i was on the edge of my seat for the whole film.

So beautiful and imaginative and funny and insightful and moving, This project is the perfect synthesis of what we have been doing at Darklight. Well done folks, I cant wait to see where it goes next – go creative commons!

Derek O’ Connor, Darklight Programme Director:

What can I say… I was blown away. Congrats to everyone. It made the festival.

Rachel Rath:

Congratulations to all… Thank you for the opportunity to be part of something so historically extraordinary. I am in awe of the film, such melding of such talent.

I am so honoured to have been part of this event that is so uniquely collaborative and inventive. Perhaps other cities in Ireland/the world/the universe might make their own?

I can’t wait to see the individual pieces.

Thank you and well done Andrew for getting this off the ground. Thanks Lenny and Declan for your amazing editing. Thank you filmmakers for your talent. Thank you Derek and Nicky for the setting and opportunity to do this. I am left feeling so inspired and elated.

See you all out on set!

Miriam Ingram:

Have to say, I was utterly blown away this evening. What a flushed honour to have been a part of this – as an umbrella-holder and proud mum. Well done to everybody who made the whole thing happen.

May the briars and brambles scrawl and tangle, as you sleep for a hundred years… 🙂

Jason Figgis

It was an amazing experience to be involved with this incredible event. Maybe we can all do something like this again when we manage to get our collective energy back. All the best 🙂

Stonybatter by Jessie Ward and Susie Morrell

The lovely Jessie Ward has been in touch to let us know the film made by herself and Susie Morrell is now online.

Featuring Wiliam Miel, Yves, Longondo, Helloson, Antonio, J.C. Mamgala and Nelly Kadima, it was shot in Stonybatter and Bull Island.

David Chandler’s ‘Shamrockfield’

Remember Cloverfield? A big monster attacks New York? Check out this short from David and team – see what’s attacking Dublin!

Well done guys – really great work and provoked a lot of laughter at the launch 🙂
