    Banjoman Films Creates Campaign Celebrating Weir & Sons 150th Year

    ‘Ambition’ is a brand film that celebrates Weir & Sons 150th year in business. The film follows the story of Thomas Weir, a jeweller who arrives from Glasgow, Scotland in 1865. The narrative chronicles his early career as an apprentice jeweller in Dublin, up and until the founding of his shop first shop on Fleet Street in 1869. His plot merges with that of a modern day Dublin woman, who shares the same ambition and work ethic, some 150 years later. Her story charters her grafting through college, working hard in a part time job and ultimately through to achieving her goals.
