Shooting A Movie

Over a period of three weeks in Oct/Nov of 2015 I was privileged enough to work on a Film project titled “Dead Along The Way”  .

This was a work of Love rather than a work of Labour for a group of very gifted actors and film crew . People who believed in the dream of an inspirational writer/director  Maurice O’Carroll.

Perhaps a little bit of history here:  Some years ago I was contacted  by videographer Maurice O’Carroll -who was an avid writer of short film scripts . A friendship was formed that has taken us on a journey where we have made new friends while  working on three short films .  Maurice’s wife Elaine ( a dynamo if ever there was one) was an essential element of a team that was formed over  a short period. On the first day of our first shoot we met Sinead O’Riordan . Sinead was playing a lead roll in “Coming Out” and has proven to be a great addition to our embryonic  team- not only as an actor but also as a producer.

Under Maurice’s guiding hand we shot our three short film  “Coming Out ” , “The Bible Basher “ and ” Windows Of Wonder “.

Now, with “Dead Along The Way”D A T W  Poster we have taken a giant step in making a feature film which  has been submitted to the Galway Film Fleadh  !!!!  This is without doubt the most important and prestigious Film Festival in Ireland .  The announcement of this years Festival Programme is imminent .

ARE WE IN ?  All fingers crossed !!!
