With our huggable high fiving heroes bouncing off each other beneath one beautiful roof head, Screen Scene’s ‘All Together Now’ continues to lash happiness onto the hearts and souls of all who dwell within our fun soaked walls.
Today sees beloved receptionist Tracy Reid, cap wearing Librarian Pete O’Connor, and Sound Mixer “Manly” Mark Fitzpatrick come face to face for a round of free wheeling question asking and semi inappropriate eye gazing…
What are you working on today?
Mark: A 5.1 surround sound mix in Centre Stage for Colin Dunne, shot in 3D.
Pete: Being the head, Tail and Soul of the Library Department in Screen Scene Post Production Facilities, 30/31/41 Upper Mount Street, Dublin 2.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
Tracy: Having one
Mark: The limitless tea, coffee and biscuits, and the people you meet on a daily basis. That, and year round air con and soundproofing.
Pete: I want to say the tapes, but I also want to say it’s the people I work with. But then tapes don’t answer back or make my job difficult, so I’ll stick with the tapes. Drives too, they’re good I guess.
What is your most marked characteristic?
Pete: The Cap I wear I think. That and my almost dangerous dedication for keeping Screen Scene’s most valuable commodities safe.
What talent would you most like to possess?
Mark: Better golf.
Tracy: The ability to answer 20 calls at once
Pete: The ability to get any and all rushes and all material used in the post production process back to the client without any kind of issue whatsoever. That and the ability to fly.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Tracy: People being late
Pete:Spider’s ability to hide in the most obvious of places without being noticed until it’s too late. As well as a Wasps ability to maneuver their way into, but never out of, my office. Bad manners is up there too.
Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
Mark: “ Ahh for #@&% sake ref !!”
Pete: “Did you ask CAR?” or “No, no, Thank YOU for being the best Librarian ever.”
Tracy: “Good afternoon SCREENSCENE...”
If you could be anyone else in Screen Scene, who would you be, and why?
Mark: Mura… The man with the company credit card.
Tracy: ME…it’s good to be QUEEN
Pete: Too many to choose from. On a purely work level I would say either Gavin Hinfey, The King of The Copy Room (the guy has that place locked-down!) or else Ed Bruce, that guy has a hell of a job. On a personal level I have a soft-spot for Leema; while not an actual member of the Screen Scene, and a dog, she just seems to have it together. Sauntering in like she owns the place. Badass.
What is your Favourite credit?
Mark: 10 euro 087 (son’s phone)
Tracy: Has to be when Dave McSavage thanked me for being so fabulous
Pete:“Dinosaur Supervisor - Phil Tippett” from the movie Jurassic Park. The guy had ONE job and...Well I don’t want to spoil it for you, but he’s also in the running for “Worst Dinosaur Supervisor Ever”
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Pete:- Any fictional children’s book character with my namesake. Either that or a Cameraman for a nature Documentary. Or Space Cowboy. I’m easy like that.
What is your motto?
Mark: “Don’t worry about it lads, we’ll get them in the return leg “
Tracy: “Live life to the full”
Pete: “If I can’t find it it’s probably on my desk.”
What’s the Best thing about Screen Scene ‘All together now’?
Mark: The laughter!!
Tracy: Having the typing pool back together now…
Pete: The peace and solitude of the outback that its created...I kid, I guess its great to have everyone in one building, less walking in the rain to get to 41, especially on days like today (am I right?!?)
What is your Favourite sound?
Mark: The pop of the cork from a vintage Bordeaux
Tracy: 6 bells.
Pete: Transformers transforming, tapes being ejected from old VCRs, and the old sound of a dial-up internet modem.
Who will win the Euros?
Mark: The Germans ( Take out of that what you will )
Pete: Europe, as a whole. And the majority of pubs around Ireland. Jedward might place well though (I don’t really understand Football).
If you could read one fantasy Tabloid headline about yourself, what would it say?
Tracy: “Leggy receptionist set to be president…”
Mark: “Lotto winner scores last minute try against England whilst swatting defenders away with a bottle of Bordeaux, then drives away in a Jag”
Pete: “Local Hero wins ALL the Things - Mother proud.”
