Maggie in progress
I have spent most of today shooting “Room For Rent”, an exciting short film project written by Samantha McCaffrey and directed by Seamus Moran.
with Aileen Mythen (Clare)
Clare lives alone in a 2 bedroom flat. The second bedroom is for rent. Clare is stuck in a rut and wedded to routine. She likes to keep herself comfortable, safe and sheltered. Until Maggie, an exotic and eccentric woman looking for a room, moves in and literally sweeps Clare off her feet.
I must also mention that, as wonderful as the whole experience have been, I had most fun wearing cool costumes by the amazing and creative Fiona Delaney, who managed to convince a visionary fashion designer Claire Garvey to lend us a few of her fabulous creations – I want that head piece!

Last Wednesday, pretty randomly, I ended up on the set of a very interesting short film by the DIT School of Media graduates, shooting a tiny scene with Brendan McCormack and Jeremy Kemp. A lovely day in Wicklow!
“The Red Bear” is a drama-thriller that tells the story of freelance conflict photographer Michael Turner, and his experiences documenting the Bosnian War during the early nineties. Michael’s desires to capture these iconic moments on film take him dangerously close to the action at times, and in this one moment he comes a little too close to becoming the subject of one of his award-winning photographs.
