Frank Prendergast agrees to do Breakfast

Frank-PrendergastAfter holding casting sessions in both Cork and Dublin we are delighted to announce that Frank Prendergast has agreed to join Jody O’Neill in our upcoming short film Breakfast.

Breakfast is a piece I first saw in Project Brand New and it has stayed in my mind ever since. I thought it would make a good short-film the first time I saw it and, after discussing it with Jody, we agreed to see if I was right.

In Breakfast we meet two happily married people who can not cope with the rising inflation as they share one last breakfast together. Although written before the current recession hit, it will no doubt now be viewed as a response piece. When the film finally makes it to the screen I will be interested to see the differences in the audience responses now to those of Project Brand New.

I have been looking for an excuse to work with Jody O’Neill for some time now so casting the female role was an easy decision. Completing casting of a production is always a relief, but Frank brought so much of what I am looking for, from this character, into his audition that I am also very excited about capturing the film I have in my mind on camera.

We film Thursday and Friday of next week so check back soon for updates on the project.


Auditions for short film “Breakfast”

Posted in Breakfast on June 5, 2009 by eoinohannrachain

As you may have already read we are looking for a male actor to be in our upcoming short film Breakfast.

Originally written for Project Brand New, “Breakfast” tells the story of a Man and a Woman in love. They have the perfect relationship, the perfect house and the perfect toaster…

As interest rates rise, inflation soars and house repossession reaches an all time high, this Man and Woman make a choice. With no way to make their next mortgage payment (or the one after that) we find them enjoying one last breakfast together.

We are casting for the male role upstairs in The Roundy, 1 Castle Street, Cork on Monday the 8th of June and in The Teacher’s Club, 36 Parnell Square West, Dublin 1 on Friday the 12th of June.

He is a restaurant manager in his late twenties/early thirties. A breadwinner and an all round dependable type of guy.

As this is a no-budget short film it is an un-paid job, but expenses will be covered.
