Filming on Midnight Man has recently wrapped – the first feature film from First Quarter Films, a filmmaking partnership made up of Rob and Edward Kennedy and Andrew Mahon, that has produced several award-winning horror and comedy short films over the past five years, including Trick or Treat, Wheels of Death, and most recently In the Night, in the Dark, a short shocker that was released in Irish cinemas with Paranormal Activity 2 in October 2010. For Midnight Man, First Quarter Films teamed up with longtime collaborator Lorcan Kavanagh (Producer) for a Kennedy / Kavanagh production. Midnight Man is an independent Irish horror film shot entirely on location in a Neo-Gothic mansion in Shankill, Co. Dublin in October / November 2012.
The filmmakers are hard at work in post production and hope to introduce ‘Midnight Man’ to audiences around the world in October 2013. For more information please visit www.midnightmanmovie.com
