Before Easter, we went to the Odeon cinema in Limerick. Our film (League of Skeletons) was shortlisted from 400 entries for the Fresh Film Festival. Only 38 were shown in the cinema. We left at 7:15am on a bus. The journey took approximately 2 hours but we were delayed because of road works. On the way, we saw Thomond Park, the home of Munster rugby, and the River Shannon. When we got to the cinema we bought sweets and went to the toilet. We sat down in the cinema. We missed 3 or 4 movies because of the road works. There were many great films and two breaks. We won an award for best CGI effects (computer generated images). We got a plaque and our photo taken. On the way home we went to Supermacs to eat. We had a great day out. Watch our film below:

‘Job Done’, based on a short story earlier in the year by James and Patrick in sixth class, is our five-minute film for FÍS 2011. We are very grateful to James and Sandra Hession for the use of their home and all the cups of tea! Best of luck to Patrick, James, Mollie and Toni who start secondary school in September.
A sincere thank you to the parents for their help with costumes and props, to all the children for their hard work and great performance and to Shane for taking the video. Happy Christmas to you all.
