Past Work: The Conversation [2011]


I just unearthed this from the archives over on Vimeo: The Conversation. It was made for the competition Dare 2B Drink Aware, an initiative by drinkaware.ie, which I made with students from the Institute of Technology Tallaght (not Tallaght Institute of Technology, which would be TIT, since as we all know, that stands for Trotter's Independent Trading).

The Conversation claims Judges' Award at the Dare2BDrinkAware awards

Last week I went down to Dublin with the crew of The Conversation to attend the Dare2BDrinkAware awards, and we walked away with the Runners Up Prize in the Judges Choice category. This was a great achievement for the team, and thoroughly deserved by the whole team.

The awards were judged by RTE presenter, John Kelly, 3e presenters Caroline Twohig and Cassie Stokes, John Kennedy from Silicone Republic and director of As If I'm Not There, Jaunita Wilson.

It was a great night for Institute of Technology Tallaght with the team who took first prize and People's Choice for their film, Babes in Bits, also from the college to complete a clean sweep for the department for the film awards.

DrinkAware is an organisation that seeks to raise awareness of alcohol's detrimental effects, especially among the 18-29 age group and this aim was highlighted in all the short-listed productions. All the shortlisted films can be viewed on their website, and this is the final edit of The Conversation.
