Dublin In Pieces is the second feature film from i-Wire Films and writer/director Rick Larkin after their 2008 effort Satellites & Meteorites which starred Adam Fergus & Amy Huberman and went on to win multiple festival awards across the world and be released in 15 countries in 6 languages.
The film stars some of Ireland's most talented actors who have graced the stage, tv and the silver screen both at home and abroad including Paul Reid (Raw, Alice in Funderland), Adam Fergus (Being Erica, Satellites & Meteorites), Brendan Conroy (Kings), Geoff Minogue (Once), Luke Griffin (Band of Brothers), Kate Brennan (Dollhouse) and Norma Sheahan (The Clinic, Ondine).
This is a film from our city, an anthology of short stories cut together to bring the drama and beauty of its citizens existence to the silver screen. Many films have been made in Dublin, and many about Dublin, but none have sought to demonstrate the singular existence that most people lead. Dublin In Pieces is attempts to bring the audience into the lives of these people, from the exciting to the mundane, from the happiness to sadness and from hate back to love.
The film has already completed principal photography and is trying to raise funds for final post-production work which will include a surround sound mix, a beautiful original score and an online edit which is taking place at Screenscene in Dublin. We have already spent approximately €50,000 getting the film to this stage but need your help to get to the final hurdle!
The budget breakdown is as follows:
Sound Editing & Mix €6,000
This is where the audio from the film is edited and sound effects and music are added in. The final audio tracked is then mixed together to produce a beautiful Dolby 5.1 soundtrack.
Our score composer is writing a boat-load of new music for the film and this will cover his base fee (he has agreed to defer most of his payment)
Picture Grading & Online Edit €2,300
This is the final stage of the post-production process when a Colorist will go through the film, second by second, and adjust the colors and contrast of the pictures to match them all together and to provide the best possible viewing experience. The film is then mastered in HD and is then ready to view!
Other Costs €800
These costs are to pay for all sorts of mad bits that go with the above like a dolby licence, dialogue re-recording and tape stock (it sounds cheap but it's actually pretty expensive).
The result will be a portrait of Dublin, in ten parts and in stunning high definition that we know will impress festival audiences across the world.
