'The Stranger' shot in Cork by Jason Woodard.
IFTN takes a look at another three short film projects - from Cork revenge Western ‘The Stranger’ to the adventures of two Wicklow brothers in ‘The Swing’ and an award-winning odd couple based in a bakery.

Western Short Wraps Cork City Shoot

‘The Stranger’, a short Cork-filmed Western written and directed by Jason Woodard, is currently in post-production and will screen in Cork’s Gate cinema on 8th September.

Produced by Cork-based AClique productions, the short was shot by director of photography Ian D Murphy of AV3 Productions last December on a Red One MX camera in a single day.

‘You’re A Star’ contestant Pat Fitz features in the main role and also recorded the title track for the 18 minute revenge drama set in 1884.

AClique Productions was founded five years ago by Jason Woodard and Donal O’Shea, and counts among its past and future credits the zombie film ‘Vicious’ and a forthcoming detective action film.

A Tale of Two Brothers in Co Wicklow

‘The Swing’, a Filmbase/RTÉ short film, wrapped filming on Sunday evening following a four-day shoot in Avoca, Co Wicklow.

The short was directed by Damien Dunne and produced by Nora Windeck (‘Long Is The Way’, ‘Foreclosed’).

The plot is described as a coming of age story about two young brothers, played by Matthew Dillon (‘The Sea’, ‘Love, Rosie’) and Matthew Burke in his film debut.

Director of Photography Eamon Nolan used Red MX to shoot the film, which was produced by Highly Stimulating Productions, executive-produced by Phantom Limb Ltd and will be edited by Fernando De Juan.

‘Barry’s Bespoke Bakery’ Nominated

The Irish Film Board-funded short film ‘Barry’s Bespoke Bakery’ has been nominated for the Iris Prize in Cardiff, for outstanding film work in the LGBT film genre.

The GAZE International LGBT Film Festival nominated the short as Ireland's only entry for the prize this year after it won the Spirit of GAZE 2013 award.

Directed by Denis McArdle and produced by Ben Keenan for Songway Films, ‘Barry’s Bespoke Bakery’ is an odd couple comedy with Michael Bates and Steve Gunn.

The film was photographed by Richie Donnelly and edited by Jeanine Hurley and has been screened around the world in locations including Helsinki, Barcelona, Hong Kong and Canada.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
Over €4.6m allocated by Creative Europe to Irish screen industry in 2021
