The film, which I was DP on, was actually shot primarily on a Panasonic HPX371, but for this sequence I tried out the 550D just to see how it looked in this particular setting. These are the only stills I have from the 550D and are ungraded apart from the last one. Problems such as moire have not been corrected yet. Done using only the kit (18-55) and zoom (75-300).
“Based on the short story by Frank O’Connor, the story First Confession was chosen because of its reputation as one of Ireland’s most famous short stories and the fact that it has wonderful parts for young actors. All the lead child actors were chosen from Young Irish Film Makers (http://yifm NULL.com) acting programme.
The film stars newcomer Ferdia Roche as Jackie, a young boy, who is due to make his first confession before receiving his first Holy Communion. Jackie fears confessing his terrible sins because they include trying to kill his spiteful sister with a breadknife, and planning to kill his grandmother who walks barefoot around the house and drinks porter. The film follows poor Jackie as he struggles to keep from murdering his enemies, avoid the fires of Hell and cope with the mysteries of a dark confession box!
Other children starring are Andie Snyder as Jackie’s evil big sister Nora and Odhrán O’Shea as Jackie’s best friend Bill. The adult cast will include a number of regular Kilkenny actors in featured roles, as well as professional actors such as Pauline McLynn (Shameless, Father Ted) and Karl Spain, the hilarious Irish comedian, who will play the part of the priest.”

Principal photography was recently completed for Monaghan based Stone Grey Films debut short ‘Lose the Booze’, which was shot in the Bragan Mountains of County Monaghan on the 7th and 8th August. The short is written and produced by Declan Reynolds (Jack, Social Work) with Ronan Connolly co-producing and Damien Byrne as executive producer.
‘Lose the Booze’ centres on two estranged friends (Dermot and Seamie) who wake up the morning-after-the-night-before in the mountains in a stolen delivery truck, a full load of beer kegs and no clue how to undo the mess they are in. When they run into the local Garda, they need to put their differences aside and think fast how to lose the booze.
Lose the Booze stars Patrick Goldman (Puff, Spoon), Declan Reynolds (Puffball, Seer), Pat Deery (Leap Year, Puffball), Mark Holland and newcomer Roisin Treanor. Producers told IFTN they hope the short will have its premiere at Clones Film Festival in Co. Monaghan this autumn.
