Lilla Vargen 'Why Wait' by TJ O'Grady-Peyton
Over ten thousand people are living in emergency accommodation or sleeping rough in Ireland, and TJ O'Grady-Peyton tackles the subject matter with an empathetic and careful touch in this video for Lilla Vargen.
Why Wait is a poignant and emotional track, and the documentary-style video is similar in its qualities. A mixture of portraits and snapshot vignettes of Dublin's homeless, the guerrilla-filming style helps keep the video grounded and real, with a raw honesty emanating from every frame about the human cost of the city's housing crisis.
"We shot this piece over the course of seven days in Dublin last year. This year has seen record numbers of people (10,000+) living in emergency accommodation or sleeping rough in Ireland. This piece deals with that subject matter. I also took part in a filmmaking masterclass in the Amazon jungle, mentored by Werner Herzog in 2018. After coming home to Ireland I was inspired to make something ultra low budget and guerilla. This is a result of that experience.
"Having volunteered at a charity called The Simon Community in Dublin, I also saw first-hand the effect the housing/homelessness crisis was having on the city. Finally - I was very fortunate to get a chance to work with a team of really talented artists on this project.
"Ana.Projects worked directly with us on a 35mm print of the offline edit, to create a number of animations. They scratched into the film emulsion before filling the lines with different coloured inks, playing with the captured footage to bring certain shots new life."
