'Prodigal Son' Screen Grabs

Just finished another short, 'Prodigal Son' written and directed by Colin Scuffins. It's a futuristic western, so there was a lot of room for stylised shots - plenty of tracking and even a touch of noir lighting - lots of fun for me! Here are some grabs anyway...

More after the jump...

Shot on Red, with Nikons (mainly a 24mm). Lighting-wise I had a fairly modest package of a Joker800, four 1k pars and three single tube kinos. The Joker came in particularly handy.

The extensive and talented cast included Sean Conroy, Jill Kavanagh, Clara Kavanagh, Ryan Andrews, Ray Kinsella. The producer was Eilis Mernagh, and Marie Caffery was production manager. We shot over four days in various locations around Dublin/Ashtown.

Much kudos goes to my various assistants throughout the shoot: Mark, Niall, Padraig, Neil, plus the excellent Daniel Doyle, who headed up the grip department. The film will go into post production soon.
