Hello there!

Wow, we haven’t put anything here since January. Well, here it goes: Land of Amber is finished and premiering in Irish TV!

Next Tuesday 9th September in TG4 at 10:30pm and repeated on Thursday. It opens the new season of the fantastic documentary series Fíor Scéal It will then be available in the TG4 Player for a month -only in Ireland, as we’re seeking international distribution at the moment. We’ll keep you posted.

And if you think “hardship, exploitation, ugh , not in the mood for it” We don’t like making our audiences suffer from compassion fatigue, and it doesn’t help anyone. It’s an entertaining journey, it’s fun, it’s critical and it even has humor. No lectures.

If you click on the photo, it’ll take you to the trailer.

Good start to the New Year!

Hello and Happy New one!

Lots of things starting, finishing and continuing around here for 2014-too many deadlines in 3 months-time, to be honest, so we’ll have to keep our heads down.

This is what we’re up to at the moment:

We’re developing a fiction feature script with the talented and versatile writer Patrick Chapman (poet, writer, TV and screenwriter) who launched a new book, The Negative Cutter before Christmas.

We’re finishing two new docs: Land of Amber, shot in Mexico this time last year, with help from the Simon Cumbers Media Fund and made for broadcast in TG4 in the spring; and Park Life, a new version of City Wild for RTÉ, which should also be finished around then -didn’t I tell you?

We’re also in development with a new doc with Andalusian production company Imago Producciones, which main parts are to be shot both in Ireland and in the South of Spain, which also needs to hit a deadline in March!

And, and, and… most urgently, City Wild is premiering in Dublin!: IFI, 19th January, 1pm, you can read all about that HERE. We just got featured in the Herald this morning and a nice segment in the 98FM morning news as well.

So, if you’re in Dublin next weekend, we may see you, in one of the few occasions we’ll have before evenings get nice and long again.

Happy Christmas / Feliz Navidad

Próspero Año y Felicidad… in case you know the song, but if you don’t: “A Prosperous New Year and Happiness!”

We just want to wish all Whackala followers, supporters and colleagues the very best for the holidays.

It's the Phoenix Park -of course- in the snowy winter of 2010 but we love it!
