Last Service is the new short documentary by director Bertie Brosnan, produced with the help of funding from Cork City Arts Council. I'm a big fan of Bertie's work and have collaborated with him in the past, so of course I was thrilled to come on board for this project.
It depicts gravedigger Stephen O'Connor at work and at home, meditiating on his job and on mortality. As well as being beautifully shot, it shines some light on a profession that we don't normally hear a lot about. I did the sound mix and composed the music for the credits.
It got its first write up earlier this week in Scannain: http://gearr.scannain.com/irish/last-service-poster/
