October Eleven Pictures Wraps Irish Feature ‘Family’
16 May 2014 : Aisling Newton
Dublin based film Production Company October Eleven Pictures (in association with Pop Twist Entertainment Inc.) has begun post-production on ‘Family’, a new feature film starring Lynn Rafferty (Love/Hate) and Stuart Dunne (The Snapper, The Van, Fair City).

‘Family’ is a violent tale which looks at the dilemmas facing 29 year old Dee Clancy (Rafferty) who, away for three years in Germany, is forced to return to Dublin following the brutal murder of her younger brother Steo. Tracking the criminal network throughout the city, she determines to take them out one by one until she will finally come face to face with her old adversary Joe Bruton (Dunne). Written and directed by Jason Figgis, the feature was filmed in Dublin during March and April 2014. Figgis’ previous films include ‘Children of a Darker Dawn’; the Charles Dickens’ adaption of ‘A Christmas Carol’, starring Bryan Murray (Holby City, The Bill), Brendan Grace (Father Ted) and Brendan O’Carroll (Mrs. Brown’s Boys); ‘Cathnafola’, a collaboration with Chris Halton of Haunted Earth (UK); and his latest feature film ‘Railway Children’, which has been picked up by Los Angeles Sales Agency Poptwist Entertainment Inc. ‘Family’ is currently in post-production at a facility in Belgium. Producer on the project was Matthew Toman with Alan Rogers acting as director of photography. The film will be scored by regular collaborator Michael Richard Plowman with sound from Jordan Balbirnie and make-up from Tori Campbell. Other crew members include 1st AD and 2nd Unit Sound from Rosa Guilia Gavin and production manager on the project was Katie O’Dowd (The Ecstasy of Isabel Mann). ‘Family’ is set for a summer 2014 release.

Founded by brothers Jason and Jonathan Figgis in 2002, October Eleven Pictures is also currently working on a horror feature entitled ‘Don’t You Recognise Me?’, starring Jason Sherlock (The Ecstacy of Isabel Mann, Through His Eyes, Family) Mark Donaghy (The Audition, How to Be Happy). The feature is due to wrap on May 25 and is scheduled for an early 2015 release. ‘Don’t You Recognise Me?’ will also see a musical collaboration with Mercury and Brit Award Nominee MC Lord Magrao of UK Indie Band The Guillemots, who will be scoring the film.

October Eleven Pictures recently launched a new acting course called ‘Feature Film Project Ireland’ which entails an 8 week intense acting workshop on a feature film that will then move into shooting and be offered an industry screening after completion. The course will include improvisation skills; in-depth analysis and creation of character; building of character relationships within the story; and a chance to work on all aspects of performance with writer/director Figgis.
