The Beara Peninsula is a spectacular peninsula. One of the fingers of land jutting out of the south west corner of Ireland in Munster. It is saved of all the hustle and bustle that can be found in Kerry, simply as it is not possible to drive around in a coach. Here lots of photos and photography of the region.

Dursey Island Cable Car Closure 2022

Dursey Island Cable car closure will be on the first of April, the closure is expected to last through until October. In reality there is a good chance that the Island will be inaccessible for a lot longer than that. I visited the island to meet some of the farmers and spoke to some of the local people who would be regular visitors to the island to hear and film their thoughts on the closure as well as the future plans for a bigger service and its impact on the island.

Watch the 20 minute video here below

Many thanks to Joe Sullivan, Gerald Murphy, Paul O’Shea, Anne Mc Nally, James Sheehan and David Dudley for their participation in the film.
I can only hope that the contractor and funding for the job are found soon as it is going to be a long time coming.

This film was made by myself simply as a historical archive for future reference I received no funding or remuneration for my work, which amounts to many hours of filming and editing. All done with Fujifilm cameras and some DJI Drone footage at 4k resolution.

Also thanks are due to Carina Mc Nally, Jerome Dwyer, Michelle Dudley, Patricia Sheehan and Nadette Charlet.

Of course Copyright is by definition attached to the film.

Thanks

Before the Wall Comes Down

Before the Wall Comes Down between the front room and the hallway before the wall comes down to make it into a bigger room.

The nostalgia comes out in this film with Tommie and Willy both making an appearance along with Shep the dog.

This version of the film has been slightly polished up compared to the version on social media, the definitive version. It is amazing how much time can be spent making a short film and in the end it is just a question of stopping yourself.

46 Seconds, Shep paw back in shot
62 Seconds transition between shots added
2:23 Slow motion used to reduce shake
2:40 Changed clip to remove reflections of light bulb
2:51 Changed insert point to remove a judder
3:25 Lifted Tommie’s voice

Watch the film here below, enjoy

The film was shot using a Fujifilm X-T4 and a Fujinon XF 16-80 lens
