Let’s Make a Film!

Toxic Camera Man

March 13, 2009


Michael Kelly – a Dublin filmmaker living and working in Kerry – is officially the camera man for Toxic Kinda Love which goes into production in April – dates to be announced.

I first met Michael when he helped out with stills and sound on ‘A Strange Request’ and today he is a key member of Kerry Media Network.  Check out one of his earlier short films Under The Stairs. I love it!

Jason O'Mahony: Location Manager for Toxic Kinda Love

Jason O'Mahony: Location Manager for Toxic Kinda Love

Jason O’Mahony – art director of Samhlaiocht – has agreed to join the Toxic Kinda Love project as our Location Manager and I can’t tell you how excited I am to have him taking care of this important role.  Jason has worked as a press officer for Sundance, he has encyclopedic knowledge of film, loves a good Choc Ice, he can act, and he’s already coming up with some great ideas for the shoot.

Jason also helped out on our last short A Strange Request and he was one of the few bodies remaining at 2.30am on the final day of filming!

Contact if you’d like to get involved with Toxic Kinda Love and let us know where you see yourself fitting in.  Pre-Production is well under way now and we’re going to shoot in April so if you want in, give us a shout.  Camera (we’re shooting on EX1s) and Lighting positions haven’t been confirmed just yet but we do have interested parties who we’d love to have on-board.

Brian Nolan, George Doyle and Michael Kelly have all offered their help – couldn’t ask for better!!! – so we’ll announce their roles in the very near future but still up for grabs are positions like Sound, Art Director, Make-Up, Camera Assistants, Lighting Assistants, Boom Operators, Runners… All and any help is appreciated so don’t be shy about asking to get involved!



Blue Orange

August 8, 2008

Blue Orange are a graphic design company in Dublin and they have kindly agreed to lend their support to Toxic Kinda Love.

I pitched the script to James & Liezel Pierce in Roundy’s pub and they have agreed to help us out with designing posters and printing services.

I’m pretty sure I’m right in saying that printed media design is often neglected on the short film circuit and, in my opinion, eye catching posters and smart DVD presentation are an important factor in making a film stand out from the word go.

So… here’s to Blue Orange; many thanks for showing faith in the project and I’m looking forward to working with you!


Hit The Ground Running

August 7, 2008

Pre-Production on Toxic Kinda Love has gotten off to a great start!

A Strange Request was blessed with some fantastic cast and crew and Martin Corcoran, our composer, was one of our key team members and his score added to the high production values of the film.

Thankfully, Martin has agreed to score “Toxic” and he’s more eager than ever to get stuck in.

He also tells me that he has recently upgraded his entire music studio so I’m really looking forward to working with Martin again!
