Useful Final Cut Pro Tutorials

Posted in Breakfast on May 18, 2010 by eoinohannrachain

While doing the post production on Breakfast last year I had to learn fast. I ended up being the editor, the sound editor and the colorist so I learned a lot of new things in a very short space of time.

One guy I found very useful was AppleShakeGuru on YouTube.

For anybody who’s starting out in Final Cut Pro the video below is a good place to start.

Breakfast to screen at the Egomotion Screening: Flashmob Special

Posted in Breakfast on December 16, 2009 by eoinohannrachain

Egomotion are holding another of their screening nights this Saturday, the 19th of December. Following on from the huge success of the Egomotion Flashmob video on YouTube, the screening will culminate in an extended version of the Flashmob video including previously unseen footage and interviews.

As if that wasn’t enough the screening will also include some of the best films from Cork based filmmakers. Included in that selection will be the premier screening of our very own Breakfast. Check out the trailer above to whet your appetite.

Breakfast has taken longer than expected to complete post production, and there is still a slight doubt that the music will be ready for Saturday, so to finally get the film in front of an audience will be a huge moment for Clinic Media and for me personally.

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.

To book a slot please email clinicproductions@gmail.com

A 2-day shoot directed by Eoin Ó hAnnracháin for Clinic Media.

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