Hello. I'm Dave Thomas, an award-winning filmmaker based in Arklow, Wicklow. I will make a beautiful, heartwarming short film with a high production value that will create employment for people within the film industry, mainly from County Wicklow. The film will be submitted to Oscar-qualifying film festivals where it can be screened to large audiences while in the running to get selected for an Oscar Nomination.
That's our goal.
The film will showcase the beauty of Arklow and County Wicklow to a global audience while demonstrating our talent in the county.
Seven Moments in Time is about bridging the gap between generations, something we don’t do very well as a society. Young people and the elderly remain in separate worlds with no bridge between them.
In the film, an older man sits on a public park bench weekly to eat sandwiches and drink tea from his flask. This becomes an issue when a teenager sits on the older man’s bench. Two generations often perceived as worlds apart are characterised by the two people sitting on separate benches. The physical and cultural divide gives the impression that these two people will never get on, will never understand each other, and will never find a connection.
Each moment in time reveals the differences between the two generations. And then, a moment in time changes everything.
