The Chronoscope – IMDb

The 20 minute short film was screened at The Flat Lake Literary and Arts Festival on 16 August 2009, at Hilton Park, Clones Co. Monaghan, Ireland.

The Chronoscope tells the story of a female inventor who is kidnapped by the Third Reich after she invents a camera with the power to see into the past. The short film was written and directed by Andrew Legge and produced by Fastnet Films. The film was funded under the Wicklow County Council’s Per Cent scheme and is narrated by Jeremy Irons.

The Chronoscope combines archive and shot footage which was manipulated in Post to evoke the style and atmosphere of the era. Post Production took place at Screen Scene where Allen Sillery worked on the pictures in flame “The director wanted the main character to interact with Hitler, DeValera, Einstein & the Queen. Other newsreel footage from Ireland in the 1930’s had to be doctored by compositing artists, banners & signs relevant to our story. Various chromo-key plates were shot with on set vision-mixers to aid registration & mimic our actors movements to that of whomever they were meant to be interacting with.” Colourist Angella McLellen then graded the pictures on the Nucoda and Simon Thornton finished the project in Online.

Jeremy helps raise funds for a new cricket pavilion

Former PM backs new pavilion

FORMER prime minister Sir John Major was the guest of honour at a dinner to raise funds for Nettlebed Cricket Club’s new pavilion.

It was held at Manor Farm, Nettlebed, the home of Bessie Kelart, last Friday, when 125 guests enjoyed a champagne reception before sitting down to a three-course meal.

Sir John, who was introduced by local actors Jeremy Irons and Simon Williams, entertained the guests with cricket stories before an auction of 15 lots was held, with Tim Eggar acting as auctioneer.

By the end of the evening a total of £21,000 had been raised towards the £80,000 needed to replace the current pavilion, which was built more than 100 years ago.

Jeremy irons discusses the joys of cricket

Jeremy Irons: “You can’t get closer to the heart of England”
September 25th, 2009 by Edward Craig in England, Miscellaneous

Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons discusses the joys of cricket with Edward Craig

I played cricket when I was at school. I suffered indignity after indignity. I used to sit there on the boundary for hours, trying to make grass burn with a magnifying glass. I would make the sandwiches for tea. That was what I did, more of a helper.

We had a Sunday team. Called the Duckhunters, we organised it at school but played outside of school territory. It meant we could get out to cricket grounds that were next to pubs. A great excuse for drinking and the most fun I’ve had in cricket.

I would fancy being a bowler if I played properly. The strain of standing there as a batsman wondering what was going to come down outweighs any pleasure. The gruelling mind game of bowling appeals to me more. You get a second chance and there’s an element of mind control that a bowler has over a batsmen.

Local, rural cricket shows the unchanging quality of British culture. There is something essentially English and calm, ordered and measured, yet with an element of unknown and excitement about village cricket. You can’t get much closer to the heart of England than sitting on a beautiful summer’s day watching cricket.

I hadn’t followed the Ashes this summer. I was in London when we won one of the Test matches, with a friend in St John’s Wood and she thought the world had exploded at one point. She could hear the roar of the audience with each wicket.

There are a few films about sport. In films you have to focus on characters and people and you have situations in sport which allows you to do that. Film is about what’s going on in people’s heads and hearts rather than a particular game. But if we care about the person who is in the game it can make for a good film.

Harold Pinter was very furious about his cricket. I remember seeing his study full of cricket books. It was a very important part of his life.

The portrait of Harold Pinter (pictured with Jeremy Irons and actors Henry Woolf, Indira Varma and Colin Firth at the Olivier Theatre in London) is being auctioned this Sunday (September 27) at Lord’s with all proceeds going to The Taverners. Bids for the portrait can be made via email: pinter@lordstaverners.org

Jeremy Irons attends Whitney Museum opening

Movies, fashion, society and art all came together on Wednesday night at The Whitney Museum on the Upper East Side. The evening celebrated the opening of “Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction,” a show that runs through year-end.

Actress Joan Allen portrays O’Keeffe in a Lifetime movie premiering this Saturday that focuses on her rocky relationship with her husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz.

“Stieglitz was very effusive, very talkative, intellectual, debating and he also liked the ladies besides [O'Keeffe] and that became an issue. So they ran into their snags in their relationship,” says Allen. “His photography influenced her painting a great deal in terms of framing and selection, and so in some ways it was a really wonderful coupling but they were also very, very different people.”

“You think, ‘Why did this pair stay together? What is the attraction?’ There was a big age difference, so that exploration was a very interesting one for me,” says Jeremy Irons, who plays Stieglitz.

Pamela Roland’s designs at Fashion Week were inspired by O’Keeffe.

“So you obviously see the flowers and Georgia is obviously known for flowers and very abstract flowers and the oranges and the bright colors,” says Roland.

Barbara Haskell, the Whitney Museum’s curator, believes O’Keeffe was a very important artist.

“She’s made paintings that for decades have tapped into people’s emotions when the mind stops and you’re completely absorbed in the thing itself, and that kind of universality has endeared her to generations of people,” says Haskell. “From the very beginning of her career she was a star.”

Between O’Keeffe’s paintings in the Whitney and O’Keeffe-inspired dresses on the models, Alfred Stieglitz would have been pretty proud.
