Good Vibrations

70’s Belfast set indie flick tells the incredible true life story of Terri Hooley, the radical music-lover who opened a record shop on the most bombed half-mile in Europe during the Troubles.

Through the shop, the aptly named Good Vibrations, Terri discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city’s nascent underground punk scene. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life.

Edited by Nick Emerson, ‘Good Vibrations’ completed post production here at Screen Scene, with Warren Dowling Finishing, Michelle Cuniffe serving as the Dialogue Editor and Ken Galvin provided the Sound Mix. Nikki Moss was the Supervising Sound Editor on the film.

The script was written by Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson, with Andrew Eaton (The Trip), Chris Martin (Peacefire,) and David Holmes (Ocean’s Eleven) producing.

Executive producers on the feature include Joe Oppenheimer for BBC Films, Nigel Thomas from Matador Pictures, Bruno Charlesworth from Immaculate Conception Films and Robert Walpole and Rebecca O’Flanagan from Irish production company Treasure Entertainment.

‘Good Vibrations’ took the Galway Film Fleadh Best feature award in 2012.
