Cashell Horgan’s latest film Told You was awarded funding by the Limerick Arts office film bursary scheme with Producers; Joe Mullins, Linhong Yang of Made Image Films. The 10-minute short film Told You tells the story of a young boy’s fear of the dark and a monster hiding in the house. But he has a hard time trying to convince his parents the monster is real.
The film is set in the ’80s and aimed for family audiences. The principal role of the young boy is played by limerick actor Elliott O Donoghue aged 7, Joe Mullins (The Clockmakers Dream) plays the father and Hanna Osborne (A Very Irish Family) plays the role of the young boys mother. Jass Foley (The Hit Producer) is DOP with Cashell Horgan writing and directing.
This is Made Image’s second short awarded funded by the Limerick arts office after the multi-award winning short The Clockmakers Dream reaped 30 awards on the festival circuit since 2016.
Cashell commented, “It was great to be back and film in Limerick, I’m happy that we got to make the film, It’s simple story but I think it will resonate with everyone who’s been afraid of ‘things that go bump in the night’ and it puts forward the real monster can be the people around us at times. I’m very happy with the results and the talent and crew we had. It was Elliot’s first time acting for film and I think he could have a bright future ahead of him.”
Told You is set for release on the film festival circuit in 2019.
