“…and after he lost her, he lost his mind and spent the rest of his days staring out the window…waiting for her to come home”.‘Erin’
It doesn’t seem so long ago that I spent the day with a fantastic group of creatives at Glenarm Harbour and several nearby locations in Northern Ireland working on a proof of concept film. It was cold. It was windy. Still, they perservered and the end result is nothing short of pure art.
‘Erin’ is the first original short film written and directed by the fabulous Connor Richmond of Dogleap Productions and filmed in collaboration with Grafters Media. It is co-produced by Connor and Jamie McBrien. It casts myself and the lovely Laura Douglas in the roles of a father and daughter struggling to accept the past in order to connect with their present and move ahead into their future. This short pilot serves as a proof of concept for a future short film set three years later, which is currently in development.
I recently attended the premiere of ‘Erin’ at The Strand Cinema and was not disappointed. It is a beautifully crafted and edited film. It is a shining example of what can be done with a small budget, a lot of talent and pure determination.
My thanks to Connor for inviting me along to be a part of this outstanding short film and to every member of the cast and crew who helped make it such a memorable experience.
