Welcome to Turnip Films

Iím filmmaker Jim McQuaid. Turnip Films is the umbrella for all of my filmmaking work. Most of the pages under "Turnip Films" above have a new submenu option: Watch The Film. Please enjoy my films and let me know what you think. Get on my mailing list and receive updates four times a year (or so).

 Current film project - Last Words: Mary

"Current" is a pandemic word. This film was started in March of 2020, halted, most of the rest was shot in late 2020 and then I spent all of 2021 trying to find the energy and emotional strength to finish the film (and shoot some boilerplate pieces that were still needed). In this extended "interim" I found a new ending for the film, which made it better. These are the three actors who portray the family in conflict. The film is now in the final stages of editing and should soon be ready for a composer to provide the finishing touches.

Stay tuned.
