After recovering from the splitters, we’ve been regrouping, we got back to the day to day work; amongst other things, progressing with the rough-cut of our new documentary, Land of Amber. After finishing a fourth edit we’re fairly happy with, we’re letting it settle and waiting on feedback from colleagues and co-producers.

In July, new online magazine/artist community Splice was launched, featuring Whackala, Leticia as a director, and two of our films, Forty Foot and City Wild. It features many independent filmmakers and great photos and links to their work, have a look around.
Forty Foot appeared in a very special commemoration poster, you can read all about it here.
And, of course, we have started filming and developing a new doc… uhf… And there’s more to come with exciting additions and collaborations, starting this September.
Now, back to our own kind of mine… with a lot more light… Sunshine and warmth seem to be holding out for the whole Irish summer! (this pic is from doing the cliff walk around the Howth summit last weekend. Glad it was cloudy on our side for that.)

This guy, this guy… started it all! He got all the Whackala animated characters riled up and they left to form their own company! They were tired of waiting, to be fair, and tired of all this reality business with the documentaries, they wanted attention and they weren’t getting it. So here they are, in the newly form sister company -they didn’t entirely abandon us- Wakalaps which is all fun and games, and they have just published their first app for kids!
Check it out, now available for Android in the Google Play Store and for Apple devices.

Back around here after the last Mexican adventure, and while we edit Land of Amber, we are using Vimeo’s new fantastic On Demand system to distribute our very first film: After the Revolution, also filmed in the South of Mexico.
It’s about the impact of the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas on the lives of the Mayan women who joined as rebels to seek justice within their own culture.
For $3 you have access to it for a year and can watch it as many times as you like! If you’re browsing, we’re under DOCUMENTARY and if you want to go directly click HERE.
And if you like it, please tell everyone about it, it’s the key to independent distribution. Thank you!
