Jared Harris son of the legendary actor Richard Harris has narrated The Clockmakers Dream, one of the short films that was awarded funding by Limerick City of Culture in partnership with Behind the Scenes
Writer and director of the twenty minute short film Cashell Horgan said, “We are delighted to have such a great actor as narrator. Jared was a real pleasure to work with, a humble actor with great wit and talent which made the recording a lot of fun. It brought another dimension to the The Clockmakers Dream and the whole feel of the film. It’s very encouraging that an actor of this calibre takes such an interest in Irish film and genuinely appreciates the short film form.”
The film took over little over nine months to complete and was filmed in Limerick for eight days with local talent and crew. The post production was extensive and intense, taking several months to integrate the actors with the fantasy landscapes and animation. The films’ overall style is that of an animated film but reminiscent of a pop up story book, and combines handmade masks, 2D and 3D animation with live action to create a very novel fantasy world.
The film had a cast and crew screening at the Richard Harris Film Festival in Limerick on October 24th and will now begin its festival tour.
