My good buddy Eamon Stack is raising funds over on fundit for a very exciting short film project he is working on..Stuama.
Here’s the press release…
Stuama is a bi-lingual short film that follows David, a young man in his early twenties, who goes to spend time in the hills with the cantankerous Tadgh. Over the course of the story we discover what both men have in common and why David has come there – he’s about to go to prison and Tadgh, a republican ex-prisoner, has agreed to mentor him before he’s taken into custody. Complicating matters is Tadgh’s refusal to speak anything other than Gaeilge.
Its directed by Paul Webster, a filmmaker and writer from Navan, Co. Meath now based in Galway. He is a graduate of GMIT and The Huston School of Film and Media, NUI Galway. He has been making films for the past 7 years and also works as a journalist for Film Ireland Magazine. This is his first time working with Eamon de Staic of Latchicko Productions to bring this story to the screen.
Stuama was the winner of The Dingle Film Festival pitching competition and Stuama will be the opening film there in March 2013. The lads are raising money for the post-production costs of the film. The film has already shot with an excellent cast and crew but now however, they need to raise €1,600 to cover the remaining costs of completing the film. The money raised will allow them to work with a skilled editor, sound mixer, colourist and composer for the film. It will also help them to promote the film and cover administration costs for entering film festivals.
The lads are really proud of the work they’ve done so far to realise this story and they’re very grateful for all the support they have received in helping them finish it. Any amount you can offer will be greatly appreciated and you can do so here
