Post-production is nearing completion on short film ‘The Job’. Written and directed by award winning actor/writer Gerry Shanahan (Winner best screenplay award for ‘Voices’ at the Underground Cinema Film Festival 2011). It is loosely, based on scenes from a feature film called ‘Relative Strangers’, also written by Gerry Shanahan. It will have a cast and crew screening in mid February. An impressive cast, including Pat Nolan, Tommy O’Neil, and Emmet O’Dea was attached to the project. The film was produced by award winning producers Cathal Nally ('The County', 'Voices') of Barbershop Triplet Productions and Helene Meade ('Voices') with Emmet O’Dea as associate producer.

Gerry Shanahan as ‘Jack’ - Gerry has played roles in many features at home and abroad including ‘The Best Offer’ in Italy with Geoffrey Rush, Donald Sutherland and Jim Sturgess.

Other credits include: ‘Fair City’, ‘Omagh’, ‘Cracks’, ‘Shackled’, ‘Portrait of a Zombie’, ‘Derelict’, ‘Edgar’ and many more.

Pat Nolan as ‘Charlie’ - Pat needs no introduction. He has played ‘Barry O’Hanlon’ on ‘Fair City’ since its inception in the early eighties. He has also appeared in ‘Batman Begins’ and numerous other productions. He won a Golden Rose award for his portrayal of ‘Barry’ in ‘Fair City’.
