Casting Call - Calm With Horses- Galway and Clare
03 May 2018 :
Barry Keoghan

Mairead Campbell is now casting for extras and special extras of all types.

Cosmo Jarvis (Lady Macbeth), Barry Keoghan (The Killing Of A Sacred Deer) and Niamh Algar (The Drummer And The Keeper) will lead the cast of director Nick Rowland’s feature debut ‘Calm With Horses’ for Michael Fassbender’s DMC Film.

‘Calm with Horses’ is set to shoot in the West of Ireland in May in co-production with Element Pictures. Altitude Film Distribution will partner with Element Pictures Distribution for the film’s release in the UK and Ireland. Film4 will finance production along with the Irish Film Board and the newly announced Western Region Audiovisual Producer’s Fund (WRAP Fund).

‘Calm With Horses’ is based on a novella from the acclaimed collection of short stories Young Skins by Irish writer Colin Barrett from Mayo. The collection won the Guardian’s first book award and the Frank O’Connor Short Story Prize. Writer Joe Murtagh has adapted the screenplay and has collaborated with Rowland since they studied together at the NFTS. Rowland, Murtagh and Emmerson have all featured in Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow showcase.

“In darkest rural Ireland, ex-boxer Arm has become the feared enforcer for the drugdealing Devers family, whilst also trying to be a good father to his autistic five-yearold son, Jack. Torn between these two families, Arm is asked to kill for the first time, and his attempt to do the right thing endangers everyone he holds dear”

The film is current casting extras and special extras of all types, for filming in Galway and Clare in May and June. This is paid work!
