Cast and Crew required for new short film written by Terry McMahon (Charlie Casanova)
The Winter Issue, guest edited by actor and filmmaker Hugh O’Conor, is out now. The sixth and final issue of 2009 has an exclusive interview with actor Ciarán Hinds (‘Rome’) and writer/director Conor McPherson (‘The Actors’) about their latest collaboration ‘The Eclipse’, as well as a fascinating article about moving from editing to directing by Mary Sweeney, long-time collaborator with David Lynch and editor of ‘Mulholland Dr.’ and ‘Lost Highway’, amongst others.
With a focus on acting, this issue answers the burning questions of aspiring stars in three separate features. In The Business of Acting we talk to the Gaiety School of Acting, actor’s agent Maureen McGlynn and casting directors Thyrza Ging and Maureen Hughes. Then in London Calling, we get an international perspective and talk to rising stars Aidan Turner (‘Desperate Romantics’), Andrew Scott (‘John Adams’), Eva Birthistle (‘Wake Wood’), Katie McGrath (‘Merlin’), Kerry Condon (‘Rome’), Peter McDonald (‘When Brendan Met Trudy’) and Ruth Negga (‘Personal Affairs’). And what’s this? Acting work you can bank on? Voicebank, an Irish agency for talented talkers, tells us all about it.
We also have a chat with The Irish Time’s film reviewer Donald Clarke about Irish film and what actors he currently has his eye on.
Finally, Storyland was a little-known but successful web series competition run by RTÉ. Film Ireland talks to the participants and the winners, who include the men behind the web sensation ‘Hardy Bucks’.
