Naked Presidential Election

With the colourful cast of characters in the running, the 2011 Presidential Election the Race to the Áras was always likely to be a blockbuster. But few could have predicted the fascinating twists and turns that would unfold as the plot revealed itself.

‘The Naked Presidential Election’ revisits the highlights and lowlights that decorated the month long campaign, from the ‘comeback kid’ to the ‘quango queen’, from ‘vile accusations’ to the contested testimony of ‘border smugglers’, bearing witness to a myriad of sensational rumours and revelations.

Made by Loosehorse – the same company and team that brought The Naked Election to the small screens earlier this year, ‘The Naked Presidential Election’ strips the campaign bare of spin, rolling behind the scenes with the seven nominees and following the fortunes of the candidates on their month long canvass around the country.

Filmed and Directed by Ross Bartley and Pat Comer, ‘The Naked Presidential Election’ was Produced by Martha Moloney, with Cormac Hargarden Executive Producing. Edited here at Screen Scene by Juangus Dinsmore and Joe McElwaine with Jennifer McCann assisting, Warren Dowling was the Online Editor, while Ken Galvin handled the Sound mix. Audrey Dawson was Post Production Supervisor.
