‘Getting What I’m Owed’ – Ama Millieir

My latest video, for Irish artist Ama Millieir. Shot on the stunning grounds of Martinstown House by talented young DOP Joesph Ingersol. This was a fantastic opportunity to work with the Arri Alexa Mini LF, and Joey’s collection of Classic Zeiss Contax lenses. Costumes were provided by wonderfully esoteric Irish designer Claire Garvey, while special effects artist Frances Galligan provided art direction, including an enormous ‘medieval’ feast. Amazing crew work by Focus Puller Karl Walsh and AC Greg O’Reilly brought the whole thing together. Starring AMA and the stunning Cece Tiesoh. Titles by my partner Nicole O’Connor.

Particular thanks to the Booth-Keith family at Martinstown who let us film on their beautiful location, at an incredibly delicate time.

I always try to create a ‘pre-vis’ animatic, before I shoot, using clips from movies, sketches and still images to plan out the shoot. Check out the pre-vis for this video. Rough plan below, final video on top. I find planning this way incredibly helpful for figuring out shots and communicating with the DOP.
