Bye Bye Now - We're in the Edit

The phonebox project continues. Having travelled thousands of miles covering stories all over the country, we returned to Dublin to edit the film. From the many hours of footage and over 20 interviews we were to make a 12-minute documentary. Not easy at all.

We plunged headlong into the footage (well, Andrew our editor did) and picked out the best bits before deciding on a roadtrip jigsaw kindof structure to piece our stories together. So far, not bad. We're happy with how it's coming together and we got rough cut approval from the Irish Film Board, so now it's down to tweaking it as close to perfection as possible.

It has been an amazing experience making this film - we've had an amazing response from over 100 people and we've heard some great stories. It's been a challenge and sometimes a wrench choosing the stories that we're going to include and we hope people won't be disappointed. Hopefully it will go down well.

See you in Cork in November for the premiere!
