Other Voices ‘Courage 2020’ in Photos

Denise Chaila at the National Gallery of Ireland

As a response to the Covid-19 crisis, Other Voices tasked Tiny Ark with the challenge of live streaming Ireland’s top acts into the homes of everyone in Ireland and the globe. With the hope of bringing a moment of happiness and joy to the viewers twice a week, we showcased 20 artists in some of Ireland’s most recognisable and iconic venues all across the country.

For each shoot day I was working as 1st AC (focus puller), drone operator and photographer. While not on set I was designing the motion graphic animations unique to each stream and the graphics for the TV show on RTE. Taking on multiple roles on set was due to the skeleton crew we designed in order to comply with government guidelines and keep everyone on set safe during production. We enforced our own strict measures in order to keep socially distant and reduce cross contamination between gear.

Here’s a selection of my favourite images that I captured across the 20 episodes.
