Last summer I met with the lovely people over at The Public House to put together a video for Jameson's new Wild Seaweed Bitters.
With their help I got the chance to make a short video showing the connection between the ingredients of the Wild Seaweed Bitters and the rugged coastal landscape that they come from. The beautiful points of interest along the Irish west coast combined with all the detail of making the perfect Jameson Wild Seaweed Bitter cocktail. For the shoot, I got to spend two days travelling along the Wild Atlantic Way, starting at the Cliffs of Moher and making my way to Slieve League in Donegal. I captured all the stops along the way to match cut with some slow-mo cocktail making in the edit and it all comes together for the snappy montage below. Huge thanks to everyone involved, I'm really happy with the result. Enjoy!

April 26th @7:30pm - Cinema Room, Generator Hostel, Smithfield Square, Dublin
"Blending dark existential comedy with tones of horror and heart, Locus of Control has been described at “The Shining meets a FAS Course”. But Clancy’s film talks more to the Irish experience over the tough years of the recession, and ponders on whether we control our lives or not. Locus of Control is wonderfully realized and blends these dark elements with a unique tone as the main character descends into the bowels of institutionalized bureaucracy and questions his own place in the universe."
I spoke to Peter Morris from Headstuff about making Locus of Control. You can read the full interview here.
