Can you believe it’s Christmas already? It seems like just yesterday since we wrote out 2017 year in review – how time flies! In 2018, we were lucky to work on some really amazing projects.
We had a brilliant start to the year when The Lodgers won the IFTA for Best VFX. As we were up against industry behemoths Game of Thrones we were absolutely delighted. The VFX team on the film was incredible so the award was well and truly deserved. Following the IFTA win, The Lodgers was released theatrically in 24 countries including Italy where it showed in a massive 200 screens.
The project that took up a lot of our time of this year was our 15 part kids drama Mini Moguls which screened on RTE2 in November. Mini Moguls followed Grace Campbell, a totally ordinary fourteen year old who is thrilled to be given an opportunity to compete for a job with Max Mogul, a YouTube and tech sensation. However, she soon realises that she’s caught up the nefarious plans of an evil corporation. We shot Mini Moguls over three weeks in Castleknock College with a really talented cast and crew. Mini Moguls the Movie will also be showing at 10.50am on Sunday 23rd December on RTE2 – make sure to check it out!
With the generous support of Screen Ireland, we currently have six projects in funded development. This includes our new feature The Winter Lake, body horror Hive Mind, dystopic sci-fi Black Unicorn, psychological thriller Don’t Come After Me, VR noir Dead Cities and surreal drama The Foundling.
Team Tailored was also represented at numerous markets this year including Cannes, Berlin, Content London, Les Arcs and of course, glamorous Galway.
On the corporate side of things, we worked on a lot of really cool promos in 2018. Notable projects included videos for the Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment and An Garda Siochana. We were also lucky to continue our work in 2018 producing videos for companies in the charity / not for profit sector.
An even busier 2019 is planned as our next feature film The Winter Lake goes into production in Spring 2019 and we’ll also be continuing to work on children’s drama development for RTE.
We’d like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
