"The Archive"

Ronald E. Hole

Director Sean Dunne have made a strong story about a man facing troubles under the financial crisis. Dunne shares how he told this emotional story about a man who loves music.

"They have their ears closed," says a frustrated Paul Mawhinney in the short documentary "The Archive".

"What drew me to this story was... I kinda liked the idea of a very specific thing telling a larger story, and I think that this story does," says Dunne.

"The time when I made this is the time when the economy collapsed, alot of people where out of work. The music business was fu$%ed."

"I just thought that Paul's story represented a lot of the struggles people where having, not necessarily in the record business, but everywhere."

We shot on the Sony EX-1 using the Letus lens adaptor and Canon still lenses. The edit took a couple weeks. It took time to find the right pacing and shots. I had a very specific vision and my editor Galen Summer was able to bring it to life perfectly.

In a web series here at storytell.in, we will introduce you to several storytellers with different approaches to technology and storytelling. The concept is that you can see the film that they have made, followed by a version of the same film with audio commentaries.
