Waterford-born writer and director Neil O’Driscoll – known for his shorts Girls and Never Worn, as well as music videos for Katie Kim, Solar Taxi, Deaf Joe and Sam Lee – is currently casting for his debut feature, Gate.

Gate is a supernatural thriller set in the fishing village of Dunmore East during the summer of 2008. Marianne, a 17-year-old local girl, is suffering from nightmares caused by a painful secret she harbours. After a local farmer bulldozes an ancient tomb, something is set in motion that will shake the small community to its core, dragging Marianne, her family and friends into a morbid series of events.

Quincy Films is looking to add to the cast currently in place; including Holly Browne and Mollie Molumby. Mollie, of The Independent Theatre Workshop, will play the lead character, Marianne. Auditions for the wider cast will be held this month, with the film going into production in Waterford later in the year. Please contact us at quincyfilms@gmail.com to register your interest.

A stoney-faced farmer, he has a cool and wary manner; feared by most.

Volunteer Extras Needed For New Film From The Makers Of ‘Adam and Paul’ and ‘Garage’

(Garage)

WHAT RICHARD DID is a low-budget feature film to be directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Adam and Paul, Prosperity, Garage) this September and October. Shooting takes place for 5 weeks in Dublin 4, Dublin City Centre, Brittas Bay and County Wicklow. The film will be produced by Element Pictures (The Guard and The Wind that Shakes the Barley).

 

The story follows a group of friends over the course of the summer following their Leaving Cert exams, in particular “Richard”, a popular, school sports star with great prospects until one night his life is changed forever.

 

The ensemble main cast, aged between 17 and 20, have been workshopping the script since last November with Lenny and writer, Malcolm Campbell.

 

We are seeking enthusiastic volunteer film Extras with availability during September and early October 2011 for a number of party and large group scenes in the film. These roles are unpaid.

Apart from making a valuable contribution to this low-budget film, volunteering as an Extra is a great way to meet new people, see the inner workings of the film industry and be part of the film’s success.

As a low-budget feature film, we appreciate the support and dedication of all of our volunteer film Extras. Volunteer briefings and social gatherings will be arranged pre and during the production, giving Extras an opportunity to meet members of the WHAT RICHARD DID cast and crew and a chance to chat to fellow 18 – 22 year old Extras before shooting begins.

Catering will be provided during filming and transport will be provided from Dublin to scheduled shoots in County Wicklow.

All Extras will receive a thank you gift and will be invited to an exclusive screening of WHAT RICHARD DID, allowing you to see the feature film before the general public.

If you are between 18 and 22 years old and are interested please send a recent photo with your contact details to Shell on whatricharddidextras@gmail.com by Wednesday 7th September 2011.

Details on how to apply for RTÉ's talent show 'The Voice of Ireland' coming soon

The Voice is coming to Ireland!

This autumn, RTÉ will be launching a spectacular new talent search-The Voice of Ireland hosted by Kathryn Thomas.

 

Already a huge hit in the USA and Holland, The Voice is now coming to Ireland to uncover the best undiscovered talent the country has to offer.

 

Four famous coaches who are at the top of their game in the music business will be competing to secure the best vocalists from the auditions to mentor and guide to victory.

 

Different to all other talent shows, The Voice is looking for real vocal talent only. The first stage in the contest is the unique Blind Audition, where coaches hear contestants perform but don’t see them, meaning everyone is judged on vocal talent alone. Appearance, age, style don’t come into it-this competition is all about the Voice, not the looks!

 

The blind auditions are followed by the battle stages, where each coach pits two of their contestants against each other, where only one will make it through to the live stage shows. Our four coaches, together with their professional teams, will use their knowledge and experience to help the contestants to make the most of their potential.  

But ultimately only one person can emerge as The Voice of Ireland and win a recording contract with Universal Music.

 

Screentime Shinawhil are launching this fantastic new production in less than 2 weeks.

We will publish all details on how to apply for the show on www.filmireland.net as soon as we receive them.
