Director Biography – Bebhinn Naughton (EVERY LIMERENCE HELPS)

Bébhinn Naughton has been working in film & television post production since graduating from Dublin City University with a degree in Communications.
Her experience working in Visual Effects has provided an invaluable opportunity to collaborate with some of the world’s leading production studios such as Netflix, HBO, Disney and MGM. To date, her screen credits working as a VFX Coordinator include Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’, Aretha Franklin biopic ‘Respect’ and Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’.

Director Statement

As a short film predominantly produced by young, Irish women, we wanted to intimately capture the experience of “lockdown lust”. Nobody could have predicted that a script like this, written back in early 2020 would remain true to life a full year later. And even when we finally do come out the other side of this pandemic, I hope that when Every Limerence Helps is watched back, we can have a good laugh at the madness of it. After all, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry, and I think we’ve all had about as much sadness as we can handle for one year. This film is brimming with Irish talent from the cast and crew to the film soundtrack and I could not be more grateful to the team that came together on a non-existent budget to bring this fantastic script to life for my directorial debut short. So please, sit back, relax and immerse yourself in lockdown limerence.
