John Doran as Vaughan and Eddie Murphy as Teddy Boy in Swerve.

Filming recently finished on Swerve, a new crime comedy produced by Mycrofilms. The film is a fast paced, violent crime comedy about a group of criminals competing for a mysterious bag in a game where only the smartest survive. But the question is, what’s in the bag?


The film is directed by Ross Costigan and written by John Morton. It was produced by Alan Slattery and John Morton of Mycrofilms. The making of the film was supported by Artlinks which enabled the team to undertake a 6 day shoot in and around Kilkenny City over April and May.


The cast of the film includes Eddie Murphy, David Thompson, John Doran, Brendan Corcoran, Joe Murray, Ger Cody, Niall Morrissey, John Morton, Stephen Colfer, Ken McGuire, James McHale, Niall Sheehy, Paul Young and Adrian Kavanagh, amongst others.


Previous short movies from Mycrofilms include John Morton’s Hot Water Bottle which premiered at last years Cork Film Festival and Terrence White’s Baby Love which last screened at the Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival this past March. Both films have continued to screen nationally and internationally since they premiered last year. The team behind Swerve are hoping that the film will achieve the same success when it is released early in 2014.
