This is a short documentary I out together in April 2014 for the purposes of a college project.
It’s about Out On A Limb records, an independent record label based in Limerick, Ireland.
The aim was to keep the documentary under 15 minutes, which I just about managed to do.
I couldn’t include everything, which was a pity, but I hope you get a feel as to what the label is about, and how it started, as well as the challenges posed over the space of 10+ years.
Songs used throughout the documentary:
Giveamanakick – Ger Canning
Waiting Room – Message Received
Crayonsmith – Lost In The Forest
Peter Delaney – My Eyes Are Blessed
Hidden Highways – In Defence Of Magpies
Giveamanakick – Say No To Sports
Crayonsmith – Chrysalis
Windings – Something Outnumbered
Rest – Babylon, Constructing The Cosmos
Windings – Brain Fluid
Steve Ryan – Windings/Giveamanakick
Ciaran Ryan – Out On A Limb
Richard Bourke – Out On A Limb
Alan Jacques – Journalist and presenter of Green and Live on Limerick’s Live 95FM
I also interviewed Tim Smyth of Hidden Highways, but alas, couldn’t use it. I had hoped to interview Albert Twomey, one of the label’s co founders, but time and logistics caught up with me.
