A trilogy of short films will be shot in Limerick next month as part of a training programme for local filmmakers.

The initiative by filmmakers’ group Behind the Scenes in partnership with Limerick City of Culture sees Limerick filmmaker Gerry Stembridge (About AdamScrap Saturday) working as writing and director mentor.

Cinematographer Patrick Jordan (PentecostVolkswagen Joe) will shoot the three shorts and composer Patrick Cassidy (CalvaryHannibal) will supervise the music.

Casting is currently taking place and interested parties should contact: filmlimerick@behindthescenes.ie with headshot and résumé. Training crew positions will also be arranged and those interested should contact: behindthesceneslimerick@gmail.com.

Stembridge said: “There will be three short films made, all to be shot in Limerick. They will be written, directed, crewed and acted by people living in or from Limerick. The story idea is really creative and interesting and will also showcase Limerick as a location.”

Project Manager Ronan Cassidy added: “This is a very exciting time to be involved in film in Limerick. It is an incredibly ambitious project to be undertaken at local level.

“We are working on a limited budget, but I know from the enthusiasm of all involved we are going to produce something very special.

“The whole idea is to have three films that can be used separately or put together, but that might appeal as a half-hour programme.”
