Having originally been hired as the Assistant Editor for the project. I was very fortunate to given the opportunity to step up to be the Editor on the film from very early in the post production process. Working closely with Director Cathal Nally and the team to get this highly independent project over the line was truly an amazing experience. I'm very proud of the end product and so happy for everyone involved. The reception since film festivals to now post release has been heart warming and very rewarding.
The film having been totally self funded was released internationally through Random Media on April 13th 2021.
