With a soaring heart, I’m writing to thank you for not only making my crowdfunding campaign reach, but exceed its ambitious target! Thanks to all of you who contributed through Indiegogo and PayPal, we raised €20,221.37!!! Woo hoo!!!
Your generosity last year is even more meaningful as it was one of the most financially difficult years ever. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
As of 3rd December 2020, Debutante’s offline edit is 95% complete. I am lucky and grateful to work with a brilliant Irish editor, Eoin McDonagh. In addition to final edit tweaks, the next steps in the post-production process are sound design, colour grade and music.
You may be wondering why not much has happened since December. Well, just before Christmas, I gave birth to my wonderful baby daughter, and I’ve been on maternity leave since then.
Rest assured, the film’s post production will be completed in the coming months. In the meantime, here are a few stills from the film, featuring Una O’Brien (Meg), Arthur Riordan (Peter) and Richard Neville (Sam).
If you haven’t yet had a chance, I highly recommend this brilliant interview conducted by Lloyd Evans with Chris Stuckmann, an acclaimed film critic and filmmaker. I’m delighted to say Chris is also one of the Executive Producers of Debutante.
Around the same time last year, I was also interviewed by Seamus and John of The Free Thought Prophet. We spoke about the challenges of making a film during a pandemic – you can find the interview below.
Thank you all again! I hope you’re safe and well in our strange new world.
