The Irish Embassy in London commissioned me to film a series of video productions for their YouTube channel. All have all been filmed with multiple cameras and either live-streamed or pre-recorded and then edited to a pre-arranged streaming date.
This was a ‘live’ streamed 1-hour 20mins production to mark the centenary of the Government of Ireland Act and continues to be available to interested viewers thereafter. The conversation was moderated by Fergal Keane and featured distinguished historians Patricia Clavin, Caoimhe Nic Dháibhéid, Niamh Gallagher, and Ian McBride.

A 35-minute pre-recorded production to be streamed on the anniversary date of St. Brigid and continues to be available to interested viewers thereafter. It features musical performances by Joy Crookes, FEARS and Aislinn Logan, and spoken word readings by Sinead O’Brien and Martina Evans. It also included performances by Camille O’Sullivan, Loah and Lisa Lambe filmed during the previous year’s celebrations at the Embassy. An interview between Prof. Louise Richardson and Julie Etchingham, which was included in the main film, was also made available as a separate 17 min video. (YouTube link to view Brigid Unplugged)
