Last Sunday saw the release of the first episode of ‘Sláinte’, a three part web series pilot created by Dylan Townsend and David Laurence. Lucy Jones from Kerbute Productions was DOP on the shoot, and I was Assistant Director. It was a really fun, if intense shoot. The whole three episode project was shot over two nights in the venerable Gravedigger’s pub in Glasnevin.
‘Sláinte’ follows the struggles of a small Dublin community trying to keep its local pub alive in the face of invading hipsterism.
The cast was headed up by the lovely Jenny Dixon, of recent Fair City fame, and David Laurence himself playing the part of Barry, the mainstay and patriarch of Sláinte. Full cast and crew can be found on IMDB.
The next two episodes will be released consecutively over the next two Sundays.
