Back to my 'Wild Roots"
I was asked my Mike from Studio Rove to take on the role of Live Video switcher for the Main Stage at the ‘Wild Roots” music festival in Sligo. I hadn’t ever done a live edit for music, but was familiar with the role of production mixing for live streaming events, and this was just ‘streaming’ to video screens at the same venue. I have done so many music videos, my instincts are good to figure out where every...

 ‘Earwig’ for 1st Place
I finally got the opportunity to meet with Karey McHugh (Earwig Film Festival – Tuam) to receive my trophy. I was very proud to be selected as ‘Best Film’ by the judging panel, but I was even more delighted when I saw the trophy.

It takes pride of place...
