Found Footage


Ah, video.

Fifteen years ago, Ben O’Connor, of Dunlavin, County Wicklow purchased a Canon XM1 mini DV camera.

Ben writes:

I was just sifting through the hours of footage and decided to put together a little edit because I feel enough time has past to give the DV format a nostalgic feel.

Now, these things remind me of a time before smartphones, when to record something was rare. All the footage is untouched and from my hometown Dunlavin.

In fairness.

      Excellent stuff though oddly poignant.

      15 years is an aeon at that age. I hope the passage of time has been good to them all.

        i actually know the lad who made it, and he showed me this recently on his phone, and theres quite a few v sad stories about where they are now.

    really like this. also, Ben has 6 fingers on each hand. The 6th ones are only little stumps but he can wriggle them and squeeze ooze out of them, which looks, smells and tastes like snot.

    Good clean, wholesome teenage fun when country lads had a fling and nobody got hurt. Even the pet dogs enjoyed themselves. Tom Sawyer never played so freely as this.
    Politicians should stop talking about Problems of The Yoof and make more money available to local authorities that want to enhance recreation infrastructure.
