In March 2023, WFT member Maeve Stone led a creative team in making a short film called “The Last Harvest”. The company were interested in matching the on screen themes with efforts behind the scenes to make the work as a pilot project in sustainable short filmmaking. The documentary was commissioned by Athrach and directed, produced and edited by Alex Gill. It charts the challenges and learning through the process and captures reflections from the heads of department across the team. The work was supported by Siobhan Mulcahy in Clare County Council Arts Office and Sheila Deegan in Creative Ireland. A carbon data report by carbon data analyst Ken Lyons was also commissioned and is available here.
Learn more about the fascinating project and watch the pilot on the website of Crackling Light Productions, the creative company of Maeve Stone & director Alex Gill.
