Fail Safe Films have announced the world premiere of the short film The Note at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh on Saturday, the 13th July 2013 at the Town Hall Theatre.


The Note, written and directed by Ciaran Creagh (Parked) stars Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, Love/Hate) and Ruth McCabe (The Snapper) in the lead roles.  Significant crew attached included Director of Photography Owen McPolin (Mr. Selfridge, Secret State, Whitechapel), editor Dermot Diskin (Raw, Love/Hate, Stella Days) and composer Denis Clohessy (His & Hers).  Post production was carried out at Windmill Lane.


The Note tells a story about redemption, centering around Lars a middle-aged alcoholic, who through his addiction has lost everything, most importantly his wife and son. Now he carries around ‘The Note’, a constant reminder of his childhood in which he was subjected to sexual abuse at the hands of a Christian Brother. Day by day he finds solace in the bottle as he quietly observes from a distance his son, now a young boy, longing for the life he’s thrown away


This is Ciaran’s directorial debut whose previous feature (as a writer) Parked was a major hit at festivals around the world and was a winner at the Fleadh in 2011 (best first feature).  Parked was released in cinemas in 2011/2012 in Ireland and abroad.


Ciaran decided to try directing and was very fortunate with the cast and crew that levitated to the film which was self funded.  “The Note” has already been purchased by RTE and Simon Doyle, producer at Fail Safe Films has received really positive feedback and is hopeful that “The Note” can be as successful as “Parked” was.
