What Richard Did

Directed by Abrahamson and written by Malcolm Campbell, the universally acclaimed ‘What Richard Did’ follows Richard Karlsen, golden-boy athlete and undisputed alpha-male of his privileged set of South Dublin teenagers, through the summer between the end of school and the beginning of university.

The world is bright and everything seems possible, until in one furious, reckless moment Richard does something that destroys it all and shatters the lives of the people closest to him.

Featuring extraordinary performances from its mainly young cast, ‘What Richard Did’ is a quietly devastating study of a boy confronting the gap between who he thought he was and who he proves to be.

The film, which nabbed five IFTA’s and holds the title of highest grossing Irish Film 2012, completed post production here at Screen Scene and at Ardmore Sound, where it was edited by Nathan Nugent with Warren Dowling Finishing.

Niall Brady was the supervising sound editor on the film, with Emma Butt recording the ADR. Steve Fanagan completing the Sound Mix.
