The Dreamfactory Productions has released a behind-the-scenes vignette titled “The Making of The Hitmen” on YouTube. Of course, you get to see me. I look like a serious chubby mountain of a man in this one!
We had a great time on-set, and in all the zoom rehearsals beforehand. The amount of rehearsal we did was easily more than any previous production I’ve worked on. We were well ready to shoot by the time we could finally all be in the same place at the same time. I met some interesting people. I think we’re going to appreciate all the work that went into this from all the cast & crew when the final product is released! I worked with The Dreamfactory Productions, the director: Anthony, the producer: Nicola et al.. on “This Christmas” previously. It was great to work with them again. This was my first time working on a subsequent project with a production house.
I look forward to the premiere of the finished product! I’ll be sure to post about it when it comes out. I think the plan is to submit to the film festival circuit, so the premiere might be well before it’s available online anywhere.
Shooting for my part on a short film titled “The Hitmen” with The Dreamfactory Productions wrapped last Saturday. They continue to film. I believe shooting continues for another two weeks.
I believe “The Hitmen” is going to be wonderful when it comes out, and of course I wish the team at The Dream Factory Production the best of luck with the production!
I had a great time working with the team, and the rest of the cast, and I’m looking forward to seeing the completed project! I have previously worked with The Dream Factory Productions on the short “This Christmas”
I’ve made a contribution to a project on HitRecord. It is not my first. This was reading a short piece about Ireland. Since I just got a new computer, and got my home studio kit set back up with it, it came at a good time to test the setup, and to do something creative in the middle of lockdown. Since the subject is Ireland, one that I love, I thought it only fitting that I should give it a bash. It’s the most creative thing that I’ve done since March, that wasn’t directly related to my “day job” in IT.
If you have a listen, you should be able to leave me comments on HitRecord if you’re a member. Alternately, contact me via the website here, or my Facebook page.
I will be playing Ebenezer Scrooge in a student production of A Christmas Carol, on the 8th of Februrary 2020 at 8pm.
This student production is for the diploma and performance courses that I’m taking with StageScreen Classes, led by Conor Armstrong Sanfey.
The best way to get tickets is to contact StageScreen Classes directly. Contact details are in the poster image. The Sean O’Casey Theatre is at the Sean O’Casey Community Centre in East Wall, Dublin 3. It’s easy to get to via the LUAS, and likely by bus as well. The address is: SEÁN O’CASEY COMMUNITY CENTRE, 18-26 St Mary’s Rd, NORTH, East Wall, Dublin, D03 AY74 Click here for a Google Maps link.
The director just notified me that I’ll be playing a role in a new short film. We will be shooting in mid-December. I cannot share details yet, but I’m excited about it. This is my first role since two surgeries after an injury in 2018. Merry Christmas to me!
I’m looking forward to working with the cast and crew on this project. Two of the cast members are also friends of mine.
