‘Jill and Giles’ is a short human interest portrait documentary based on an English couple who have spent 20 years living and working on a boat with half of that time being spent on the River Shannon in Ireland. This documentary focuses on Jill and Giles’ initial decision to live on the boat, their work and hobbies. It explores the themes of unconventionality, freedom and belonging.
Alison Byrne originally from Rathoe, Co.Carlow studied B.A. (HONS) TV, Radio and New Media Broadcasting in ITTralee where she was awarded a first-class honours. Alison has been interested in film from a young age, since making silly home videos with family members. No editing software and just the use of a mobile phone, its play, pause and stop buttons along with the patience when someone made a mistake even if it meant they had to start from the beginning. Getting her first camcorder she set out videoing everything she could, anywhere she went and whoever was with her. From studying in IT Tralee, her knowledge of filmmaking advanced, and from this she formed a curiosity of the world around her. Curiosity is what makes her feel passionate about the work she performs.
