Pre-production continues for How To Be Happy; a comedy feature film which tells story of Cormac, a marriage guidance counsellor, Flor, a private investigator and Al, an accountant with a marriage in crisis. Cormac’s unorthodox approach to his relations with his clients brings their worlds crashing together. Ultimately, they each discover how to be happy.

The feature film is written by award winning writer/director, Conor Horgan (One Hundred Mornings). The development of the script was a collaborative effort between Conor and the MSc class in Filmbase.

Casting is well underway and with Laura Way attached to the film. Principle photography begins in March with this highly motivated crew of emerging Irish filmmakers.

The Crowdfunding campaign for this feature film has received a great response so far and stands currently at 78%. The How To Be Happy and Filmbase MSc team are extremely grateful for the support of their patrons. Any additional contributions made to help get this campaign over the line would be greatly appreciated. The nature of the crowdfunding process means that if they fail to reach the target of €10,000 by Monday, they get nothing! There are some great rewards for contributing, such as DVDs or your name in the credits to mention but a few.
