Screening of Number 35 at QFT

Deborah McCartney informed me yesterday that the film Number 35 (title subject to change) is to be screened in the QFT on Wednesday.


This is a film I have been really looking forward to seeing, based on a family's coping with a bereavement, while also sorting out the intricacies of bequeathments.


The film was directed by Cliodhna O'Halloran, and written by Shauna Mohan, who I expect will be in attendance.


Incidentally, the completion of this project means that I only have to wait for the full length edit of Hope to complete my current show reel. I will be posting it as soon as I have it completed.

Screening of Hope in Odeon, Belfast

Tonight, Hope, the Lord of the Rings film I acted in was screened in the Odeon cinema in Belfast, as part of the HND show for Belfast Metropolitan College.



The show was huge hit, and was among the most popular of the evening, the audience rapt by the visual spectacle of the piece.

The film was edited down from 11 minutes to seven, and even then it was two minutes longer than the brief allowed, but I guess the invigilators were so impressed that they overlooked this. Unfortunately my major scene was one of the big casualties of the cut.

All the guys were there, Chris, Jonny, Aisling, and of course, the director, Ben.

It was great to see the finished project, but I can't wait to see the full length version.
