Last year I worked on a production for Detroit Public Television called A Celtic Awakening. The production team flew over from the States and they employed local actors and crew, including me! I got to work with the fantastic singer Faith-Marion Robinson who came to Ireland to record the backing visuals to her live show. She sings alot of old Irish songs, so wanted to come here to show the beautiful scenery that our country has to offer. Everything was meant to be from years gone by so the hair and make-up was traditional and old worldly.
Here is a little taster of the video:
It was a fantastic job, which had me travelling all over Ireland, seeing the best that the country’s tourist sites have to offer. One of my favourite spots was the rope bridge near Bushmills, it was so pretty and somewhat scary crossing it! We stayed the night in the Bushmills Hotel, which was the most amazing place to stay, really warm and felt homely with open fires and comfy furnishings.
Traditional Irish Village of Craggaunowen. This is a fantastic celtic village in Co.Clare that has been restored, which created the perfect setting for one of her songs.
I wish jobs like this came along more often, I love travelling and really enjoyed getting to see loads of Ireland, we live in such a scenic country which is the perfect backdrop for film and television. More productions need to be made in Ireland!
Where is your favourite place to visit in Ireland?
Lots of love,
