Why is documentary an integral medium in storytelling?

We love working in documentary because of the authenticity and realness its provides. Documentary making can bring you on the most unexpected journeys, often discovering new perspectives along the way. It's one of the most rewarding times when a participant opens up to you on camera. We were honoured and privileged to make award-winning short documentary "Where do all the old gays go?" in 2021. Gaining trust and understanding with our participants was crucial and through their vulnerability and sharing of their experiences, we were able to create a really meaningful piece. 

Documenting Irish History through Video

2020 brought the year of the Covid-19 pandemic and all commercial work came to a halt. During that first wave which gave way to a lot of fear and anxiety, Director Cathy Dunne worked with Sinéad O'Loughlin and Maggie Ryan to create an online series called 'Through the Pane'. This was their way of showcasing good news to the public to boost moral as well as an important time to document in Irish history. 16 episodes episodes were made for the mini online series, with the last episode going viral, reaching over 1 million hits in less than three weeks.
