As well as individual client projects, Blue Flag Media has also initiated a number of its own projects. The most prominent of these are our Stories from Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, and our Splendid Reflections virtual arts festival. Read on for details of both these initiatives:
Stories from Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way
In August 2019 Blue Flag Media founder Sean Molloy set off on the journey of a lifetime - to travel the 2,500km length of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way in a battery-powered car, reporting on the people and places that make the west coast such a vibrant and enthralling destination. Starting at Malin Head, at the northern tip of Donegal, the sheer volume of engaging stories kept the project in that county for three months. In that time he recorded over 60 short videos of local businesses.

In the summer of 2020, as COVID-19 restrictions decimated all live arts events, Blue Flag Media curated a virtual arts festival to showcase the work of musicians, writers and artists.

People were delighted to see me in front of the camera for a change and I got to tell my story.
The video certainly got me more followers to my photography page and helped with sales of my calendar. Sean was very professional and the experience has made me feel more confident of doing something like this again in the future.

Stories from Ireland, to our business, was great. We could never have afforded to produce a product of as high a quality as Sean's. With over 250k views, the video speaks for itself. Just to say thanks and if you are a business and get the offer of having your business filmed by Stories from Ireland, Grab it!

Highlighted the crossing to Arranmore and showed people the real beauty of our trip.
I found the documentary brilliant it was very well done, it gave people a real insight into our crossing between Burtonport and Arranmore. The information along with beautiful scenery gave people a new desire to visit beautiful Arranmore. The lads done a fantastic job!
