Paper Rich is a feature length film created by Salthill Pictures.
From the GTI Gazette
A bankrupt solicitor’s final chance for salvation.
Thomas Glynn was once a top solicitor with a thriving practice in Galway. In the midst of the Celtic Tiger, Glynn was seduced into the property development frenzy. Success followed success, and Glynn on paper became richer than he could have ever dreamed.
Abruptly in 2008, the property market collapsed in Ireland and Glynn’s sprawling empire crumbled . The fragile pillars supporting Glynn’s financial colossus cracked under the strain. Overnight, he lost his business, his wife and children along with all the trappings of life which had become customary.
One cold morning, Glynn leaves his small apartment in the city and drives to a nearby lake, where he intends to escape his problems permanently with the help of his hunting rifle. However, there is one last chance for Glynn to save his life, his respect and perhaps retrieve his family. He stumbles upon a ‘tiger kidnap’ where a local bank manager is taken hostage and forced to withdraw cash.
Glynn resorts to a childlike desperation and with the takings embarks on a tense
cross-country journey to Dublin Airport. On his journey, Glynn encounters reminders from his past and looks ahead to
an uncertain future.
I came on board on this project in the post production phase. I held the role of assistant editor and was the main colourist for the film. My work was mostly around adding depth and contrast to the scenes and generally improving the look of each clip. As well as that I worked on the editing of the sound. All work was carried out using Final Cut Pro.
