Filming day : with Darn Skippy Productions
We were so lucky to get to team up with local production company Darn Skippy to make a short film in a stunning Kildare location.
The purpose of the film is to raise awareness of biodiversity loss and is also part of our campaign to get the Government to adopt the Proposed Peatlands Park for the midlands.
The sun was shining and we were ready for "Lights, Camera, Action” and a full day of filming.
Scroll down to read what someof our club members had to say about their personal experiences.
Sophia: I got to use a clapboard for the first time which was really cool! You open it up then say “slate m1” for example and then “take one” and clap the top opened part down.
Freddy: We interacted with nature a lot, we walked in bogs, woodlands and beside ponds. It took a long time to make a 4 minute video. Standing in front of the camera was easier than speaking in front of people. It was enjoyable and it felt like we were becoming famous and doing the right thing.
Ben: It felt really important and serious .I felt like I was making a big difference. It was fantastic.
Ruby: It was fun and a good experience. The drone was cool.We got to spend lots of time in nature filming.
James: Filming was cool and fun, I was a bit nervous.
Euan: I felt like the whole world was relying on me. I felt very important because we were helping the planet.
We have thoroughly enjoyed making the “National Peatlands Park” short film and hope you have enjoyed watching it.
The proposed park would be a huge win for Biodiversity, for Ireland reaching it's climate targets and for our futures.
