anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

Image Magazine & Anne Maree Barry
In her new film, Rialto Twirlers, below, screened to acclaim at this year's Dublin Film Festival, visual artist and filmmaker Anne Maree Barry captures the eponymous Dublin-based majorette troupe preparing for a national competition. It's a deceptively simple notion, one resulting in a captivating, superbly assembled whirl of sheer syncopated fabulousness. Barry's observational work captures, in her words "a creative fusion of the hard graft, skill and energy associated with our pluralistic age in which anything is possible". It's a fascinating, joyful work from an intriguing young talent. www.annemareebarry.com

16 MM Test Footage Rialto Twirlers from Anne Maree Barry on Vimeo.

Whilst I update my website, (there are bandwidth issues) I have decided to upload some test footage/sketches I made with the help of Kate McCollough in 2008. These were made one sunny May evening, at a workshop at The Firestation Artists Studios. Initially I was going to shoot Rialto Twirlers on film but instead I made the cost-effective decision to shoot on the RED. I am very pleased with the results.

Funnily enough, Kate McCollough is highlighted at JDIFF through the Irish Talent Spotlight Section and Rialto Twirlers is screening at said festival.

Tickets for Rialto Twirlers are available here >>> http://jdiff.ticketsolve.com/shows/23497715/events

I will actually be updating this blog over the next few weeks, very 2004, but I will keep my words to a minimum.
