Name: 1916

 

What is your film about? Who are the characters?

My film is fictional and based on the 1916 Rising. The main character is Thomas Murphy, a British Sargent in charge in Dublin Castle on the morning of the Easter Rising.

 

Can you describe a typical day on set/Best experience during the making of the film?

Working with talented artists and giving them my ideas and cultivating the film to its final cut is so rewarding. When you love what you do you never work a day in your life.

 

 

Who is your biggest influence?

I love comedies like family guy, the Simpsons and archer so the like of Seth buy valium McFarlene would be a big inspiration breaking the mould with animated adult sitcoms.

 

What is your favourite film?

Far too many to choose from but the sixth sense and pursuit of happiness along with Shawshank redemption.

 

What are your plans for the future/Whats your next step?

I have a nice film ready to go on the Celtic tiger. Can’t say to much at the moment.

 

Advice for people who have just picked up a camera and want to make a movie?

Don’t do it for the money, do it for the love of doing it.
