Graduation short film “Before the Boat” is shooting at the end of march in Roundstone. This film focuses on the relationship between a sheep farmer and his daughter, who is an aspiring traditional Irish dancer. Their relationship is tested as he finds out that his daughter is not only pregnant, but has also decided that she wants to have an abortion. This goes against everything he believes in and now he is forced to make a decision. Does he help and support his daughter, or does he stick to what he believes is right.

We are looking to cast a man in his 50’s and a woman in her 20’s for the main roles of this film. Auditions will be held in early February in Dublin from the week of 4th.If you are interested in being part of this production and want more information, please contact me via email:
