It’s been a very busy year, but 3 of the films I’ve collaborated with Proportion Productions with my production company Brief yellow Light, are now out and available on DVD and VOD.  Darker Shades of Elise was filmed in 2016 and released earlier this year. 12 Deaths of Christmas AKA …

The Curse of Frau Perchta

Wrapped on this Christmas themed Horror from Proportion Productions a couple of days ago.  Such a pleasure playing Frau Perchta, and working with such a fabulous cast and crew.  SFX and costume did a marvelous job creating the look of Frau Perchta. Lovely bunch and instead of saying I hope …

Remembering Jack at Enniskillen

Well I am very late in writing up this post, in part because it is very emotional for me.

In August of 2015, Happy Days Enniskillen International Beckett Festival very kindly chose to honour my father’s work with Samuel Beckett and as part of that schedule, asked me to speak at the event. I was joined by Garech Browne of Claddagh Records, with whom my father recorded Beckett’s works on a number of occasions and with Kate O’Toole of the Irish Film Board chairing the discussion, we all spoke informally of our memories of both my father and of Sam. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Enniskillen, it is a fabulously friendly and welcoming festival, I’m quite sure Sam would have approved.

I want to share my thanks and gratitude to Liam Browne of the Happy Days Festival. I am touched to know that more than 40 years after his death, people still remember my father and his work.

Most of all, my thanks go to Stephen Rea, who contributed by video to our talk. His extraordinarily kind and generous tribute was deeply moving and I treasure it. Below is a short clip.

I would also like to thank Martin Melarkey and Conal Melarkey for their work on the video pieces shown on the day. Jack MacGowran Remembered is Conal’s compilation of some of Jack’s work. Helluva showreel. I would love to have one half as good one day!

Foxy!

Day 2 of shooting for Foxtrap. I’ve worked with Proportion Productions before, they are a great team and lovely to work with, but this is my first time as Exec Producer in addition to appearing in the film. Stunning location in the heart of Somerset, a stones throw from where …

“La Lune Folle”

What a strange feeling to be on set back at my old school, Queen’s College, Harley Street. Hasn’t changed that much, though I suppose I have! Lovely work atmosphere with Meneka Das and all cast and crew of La Lune Folle. Particular joy to work with Siân Phillips and to …

Happy Days: Beckett Festival
