Moynihan Russell Post 'Waking the Titanic', 'The Seahorseman' & 'Nurses'
24 Aug 2011 :
Waking The Titanic
Dublin based sound post-production facility Moynihan Russell have begun audio post on the documentaries ‘Waking the Titanic’, ‘Seahorses’ and ‘Nurses’.

Produced by Gillian Marsh and directed by Frank Delaney, ‘Waking the Titanic’ is a one hour documentary for TG4 that follows the story of a small village in North Mayo, Lahardane, which saw 14 of its small population set off on the famous liner, with only three surviving. The rural hamlet lost a greater proportion of its people in the Titanic disaster than any other community.

The docu-drama follows the community as they remember their loss through a ceremony on the main street of the village. It will feature interviews with relatives of the Lahardane passengers, and dramatic re-enactments of life in the village for those who went and for those left behind. The documentary has been shot on Panasonic VariCam by Colm Hogan, Richard Kendrick, Frank Delaney and Gillian Marsh. It has been filming in the village of Lahardane and production will travel to the US in coming weeks to visit relatives of surviving Lahardane passenger Annie McGowan.

Moynihan Russell has begun post on the production, which is due for completion in late October. It will be in Irish for TG4 and will have an English version for distribution to international broadcasters.

Moynihan Russell is also doing post on G-Marsh TV’s BAI/RTÉ funded documentary ‘The Seahorseman’. Originally shown as a four part documentary last summer on RTÉ, the documentary will be re-fashioned into a one hour documentary feature for the festival circuit. It follows the story of marine biologist Kealan Doyle and his dogged attempt to save the extraordinary species from extinction. The original series focused on Kealan’s business breeding seahorses, but the new documentary is driven by the plight of the unusual species, whose trade in Chinese medicine will leave them extinct in 20 years. It is directed and produced by Gillian Marsh, who has been working on the project since 2002. The Voiceover on the feature doc is done by John Hurt.

Moynihan Russell will also be doing post on G-Marsh’s upcoming six part series ‘Nurses’ which follows the life and work of community nurses in Cavan, Inisboffin, Kilkee, Castleknock and Coolock. The six-part series is currently in production and will be broadcast in early 2012 on RTÉ One.
