ith the town clearly feeling a bit under the Christmas sweater right now, local filmmaker Jason Gaffney decided to do something about it.
Namely make a short film, catching Greystones’ quiet before the festive storm.
And he’s done a pretty good job, as you’ll see below. Greystones is stretching and yawning, its people living in suspended animation, not quite sure when this never-ending lockdown limbo will truly lift. And yet, there are glimmers of glitter and hope out there.
Which is what young Jason set out to catch.
“This is a visual poem that attempts to capture the atmosphere of Greystones in the run-up to Christmas,” explains the Heathervue lad. “The sparse imagery is my attempt to reference how society has changed since 2019, while at the same time hinting at the calm before the Holiday storm.
Jason breaks Miss Piggy’s heart
“Most importantly, however, this is a celebration of the beauty and soul of Greystones.”
We’ll drink a double to that. And then play Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks theme over the footage, for shivers and giggles.
We should have our Christmas round-up done for Monday evening, and our list of Christmas markets ready for Tuesday. Elvis willing.
In the meantime, take a tour around Greystones right here, right about now…
