About

If you have watched my films online and enjoyed them, please remember that they have been free-to-watch. There has been no other way for my work to be seen and for my reputation to grow but to upload them to the internet for free. Unfortunately the MORE I make these music films the HARDER it is to survive. Please help me to reverse this cruel and unfair reality. Please help me thrive.  

I have a dream to pack light and travel the length and breadth of Ireland looking for musicians, their songs and stories, to bring you one music documentary video per month. I want to continuously catalog all the musical beauty that exists in this country and I'm asking for your help. If you've stumbled across my films on the internet then you know I'm intent on finding and showcasing new and homegrown Irish live music emanating from living-rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, warehouses, rooftops, rain forests, mountains and literally anywhere but on a stage. I follow my ears first, and then try to represent the songs I find in a visual that documents the character of the performer, the detail of their everyday environs and their culture, without the common disconnect of smoke and mirrors that is so commonly associated with stages, studios and broadcast television. 

When I reach 500 patrons I aim to make each film that I create totally exclusive to Patreon. I will be sustaining a living from your patronage alone, and so have the time and energy to create one long-form music documentary every month, charging you once per creation, once per month. I will create teasers for general public release but the bulk of my independant music film catalog will exist only here.

Have a look at my special reward tiers to see what I can give you back for your sponsorship, and thank you for reading this far.
