    I’ll be making my short film directorial debut next month with [i:36nra8v9]Breakfast[/i:36nra8v9] by Jody O’Neill. :grin:

    [quote:36nra8v9]A Man and a Woman are in love. They have the perfect relationship, the perfect house and the perfect toaster… As interest rates rise, inflation soars and house repossession reaches all time highs, this Man and Woman make a choice. With no way to make their next mortgage payment (or the one after that) we find them enjoying one last breakfast together.[/quote:36nra8v9]

    I studied Film along with Drama in University of Wales, Aberystwyth, but to date I have only directed plays. You can see a bit more about me and my work at the link in my signature. I have experience of editing and plan to direct and edit [i:36nra8v9]Breakfast[/i:36nra8v9].

    Jody is an accomplished actress and playwright and has agreed to let me turn one of her short plays into a short film. I’ve even managed to persuade her to play the female character! I’m looking at a few options for the male character but I’m still open to suggestions.

    As far as crew goes I’m interested in having a chat with anyone who would be interested/willing to help out. I’m particularly interested in an experienced Director of Photography and Sound Person.

    I entered [i:36nra8v9]Breakfast[/i:36nra8v9] into the Filmbase/RTÉ Short Film Awards. We are due to hear something from them by Friday the 22nd of May but with or without Filmbase funding I’ll be making this film next month as I want it ready for the Cork Film Festival deadline of July 31st.

    The only difference will be the size of the budget! <img loading=” title=”Sad” />


    that sounds really great! I’ll be sure to help out if I can, just don’t be shy on Tuesday night and we can have a quick chat about it.

    Great! I’ll try and find you on Tuesday night so. Thanks.


    Hi Eoin & Dan
    Sound interesting, I must pop over on Tuesday and chat with ye all, got lots of free time this summer and I’m looking for projects.

    Hey Eoin, not sure if I can help but best of luck with it. Sounds like it could be great.

    I’m a line producer, writer/director and location manager based in Dublin. I’ve worked professionally in the industry since 1997.

    Any luck with Filmbase?

    Eoin O hA

    Hi Rupert. Thanks for the reply. I look forward to chatting with you on Tuesday so. <img loading=” title=”Smile” />

    Smiling Sadly, if you’re based in Dublin it could be awkward alright as we’ll be filming this one in Cork, but I’ll be in touch if I’m filming in Dublin.

    No luck with Filmbase so it’s on we go with the no-budget version…

    Just a quick update!

    My search for crew is going well and I look forward to meeting many more of you at the screenings tomorrow night. I’d still like to see more male actors as I’m a big believer in seeing as many as you can before casting.

    If anyone knows anyone who would fit the following please let them know.

    Male. He is a restaurant manager in his late twenties/early thirties. An all round dependable type of guy.

    It’s an unpaid gig but expenses will be covered.



    Hi Eoin,

    I would be interested in playing the male part. Are you doing auditions for the part?



    Eoin O hA

    No auditions set up yet as depending on showreels and number of responses I may not have to. Send on your CV and a showreel if you have one to

    Thanks Micheál.

    As promised I’m back to tell ye how it went. <img loading=” title=”Smile” />

    Finished Breakfast just in time to enter it in for the Cork Film Festival. Being my first film I’m very pleased with it, but overall it was a steep learning curve. A lot of things fell into place nicely during the pre-production which helped.

    The crew were brilliant!! There is so much talent in Cork and the work together attitude is gonna produce some great films.

    Hopefully it’ll get accepted into Cork (and a few other places) but whatever happens I’m proud of the achievement and can’t thank Egomotion enough!


    looking forward to seeing it up on the big screen!

    Wishing you all the best in getting it in to the festival! :applause:

    Eoin O hA

    Thanks Dan. I’m looking forward to that too.
