In his short film Buoy, a young man throws himself off a lighthouse to end it all, but it’s only the beginning. Ahead of the film’s screening at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh, writer/director David Magnier tells Film Ireland how his short film came to surface.
- On location in West Cork shooting all the background plates and locations, imagining there was a man floating in the air.
- In the studio shooting the close-ups of his face so we can have some actual reactions and acting
- In an underwater tank in the UK with a green screen behind the actor, which we could then drop onto the plates from the first shoot.
Buoy screens as part of the Irish Talent: New Shorts 2, Fiction programme on Thursday, 11th July at the Town Hall Theatre at 10:00 as part of the 2019 Galway Film Fleadh.The 31st Galway Film Fleadh runs 9 – 14 July 2019.
