Seams Preproduction

Co-producer, Natalie Collins, and I are back in the States after a successful four-week preproduction trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. We interviewed 15 women on both sides of the border who shared with us their experiences of the Second World War. We spent time in seven counties, visiting the North coast, the South coast, the Midlands, the East coast, and the West coast of the island of Ireland. The women we interviewed were factory workers, soldiers, nurses, and mothers during the 1940s. They gave poignant and moving descriptions of life in time of conflict, both the global conflict of the Second World War and the local conflict of the Troubles within Ireland. In their late 80’s and 90’s, the women have an incredible strength of spirit and joy of life. It was a privilege to meet each and every one of them.

Mass Humanities, a humanities funding organization here in Massachusetts, asked me to write about my process of animating recorded oral histories for their blog, The Public Humanist. You can read the post I wrote for them here.
