BYOQ was an experimental TV Pilot that we worked on at The Factory. Devised up by John Carney and brought to life by all of us at the factory. I don’t want to say too much because I still feel that it’s going to happen in the future. But in the mean time here’s some photos of the set I designed for it.
Set in Dublin in the 1970’s this film explores a rarely glimpsed Ireland, as seen through the eyes of spirited seven year old, Hannah Cohen. Hannah can’t wait to make her Holy Communion – only problem is – she’s Jewish! An Irish/Jewish film with an international feel, the beauty of this story lies in its simplicity, humour, and the universal desire to fit in.
Wonder House premiered at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival (JDIFF) on February 23rd 2012. The most recent screening was on November 16th 2012 at the Triskel Arts Centre as part of the 57th International Cork Film Festival.
“What exactly is an ‘experimental arts documentary’, I wondered, as the words flashed up on screen at the start, but by the end I had my answer: the film is a meditative, mesmerising journey that combines documentary with a loose fictional narrative, striking imagery and haunting scenes… with it’s unusual subject matter and experimental format, Wonder House should stimulate the imagination of all those interested in science or art.”
