New Antidote director Jamie Delaney has been hard at work on several new projects which we can’t wait to tell you about! In the meantime here’s his first with Antidote, A Place To Gather, a 5 min documentary for the Crafts Council of Ireland.
Setting out to tell 5 different stories about Irish ‘makers’ from Donegal to Cork, Jamie had the opportunity to cover a range of beautiful places and also put the miles and miles of Irish tarmac to the test. The result is a textured, abstract feel for Ireland, its people and the beauty of its crafts.
The piece is part of the London Design Festival and will be viewed at a specially commissioned CCOI exhibition (Redchurch St in Shoreditch if you fancy popping down). The film will also sit in the EU Parliament foyer as part of Ireland’s EU presidency in 2013. Thanks to CCOI, Keith Nally, Jonathan Legge from Makers & Brothers and Garrett Pitcher from Indigo & Cloth.
