Interview with Joe O'Connor - Director of 'Dave Goes West'

Updated: Jun 12

"A slightly fat man from Derbyshire is asked in the pub 'can you run 10 marathons in 10 days?'"


Aidan Joseph from Blink Vivid sits down with Joe O'Connor of Puzzleglass to talk about Joe's documentary 'Dave Goest West'.



For the month of June here at Blink Vivid, we're talking all about documentaries. Last week we shared a tutorial written by our very own William Wade on Recording High Quality Sound For A Documentary Interview, and this week we're talking with another local video production team based in Sheffield - Puzzleglass.


Puzzleglass are known for their positive, life-affirming films that promote amazing people and ideas.


I watched this documentary online and just found it absolutely brilliant. Dave is such a hilarious character that draws you in and gets you giggling from the get-go. In the 20-minute run-time we are whipped across the dazzling shores of the Irish coastline, finishing at the the holy mountain - Croagh Patrick.


"A story about the power of not thinking about it too much."

Dave's inspiring attitude towards life and unrelenting bubbliness makes this film a delight to watch. You'll find yourself wanting more and leaving the film feeling happier. The doc went on to see festival success and can now be streamed online on Amazon Prime. I highly recommend anyone gives this film a watch to see what all the excitment is about.
