Man On Bridge status update

BamO36LCEAAiVxF.jpg-large

We are very much busy beavering away with Man On Bridge, our interactive documentary project about Arthur Fields, legendary street photographer. We’ve interviewed a lot of people and found such a beautiful story about a Dublin icon. Since winning the Arthur Guinness Projects, a lot of people have been in touch with photos and memories which has given us a lot of encouragement and helped give the project  momentum. We hope to announce some exciting news in 2014, in the meantime do send in your photos….email info@manonbridge.ie and for further updates like the Man on Bridge Facebook page.

Garbage Island, the interactive documentary, nears….

We’re delighted to have come near the end of our first interactive documentary called Garbage Island. We’re very very close to finishing the project and it’s been a long time coming. The documentary meets the people who live on a man-made Garbage Island in the Maldives, an island created in part by the burgeoning tourism industry in the country. It couldn’t have been made without the help of a lot of friends, notably cinematographer JJ Rolfe and interactive designer Conor O’Boyle. So watch this space, we’ll be live in a few weeks!!!

Man on Bridge wins!!!

Thanks to all your voting and the jury, Man on Bridge has successfully received funding from the Arthur Guinness Projects. Big whoop and thank you everyone for all your support!!!

We’re delighted and can’t wait to bring to life the story of Arthur Fields and the photos on hundreds of thousands of photos he took.
