Arthur in­spired by cig ban

April 2004

Bray People - - DOWN THE YEARS -

A 22-YEAR- OLD North Wick­low film maker has used the new smok­ing ban to win in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion and snap up four top prizes in a pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion run by Ko­dak.

Arthur Mul­h­ern of Ea­gle Val­ley, En­niskerry, a third year stu­dent at the Dun Laoghaire Film Col­lege, won an amaz­ing four prizes in the com­pe­ti­tion, which is open to all young film­mak­ers in the UK and Ire­land.

He scripted and filmed an advertisement aimed at en­cour­ag­ing smok­ers to give up their habit in the runup to the in­tro­duc­tion of the smok­ing ban.

Some 10 people worked on the film, but the core team which trav­elled to Lon­don for the award cere- mony with Arthur were cin­e­matog­ra­pher Richard Walsh and edi­tor Fiona Starog­a­rd­ski.

At the glam­orous cer­e­mony, the trio were awarded first place for choice of brief, third place over­all, sec­ond place for edit­ing and third for cine­matog­ra­phy.

De­lighted with the re­sults, Arthur and his crew re­turned from Lon­don with a suit­case full of plaques and a voucher for film stock and equip­ment.

Arthur's fi­nal ex­ams are only weeks away and he is cur­rently work­ing on his end-of-year project – a mu­sic video.

Un­der­stand­ably, for a stu­dent, such an en­deav­our is a costly un­der­tak­ing. As such, Arthur is seek­ing spon­sor­ship from the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity to help him raise the €3,000 that will be nec­es­sary to com­plete the project.
