Wexford Locations for 'Staid'
01 Jul 2016 :
The best-selling author Paul O'Brien has adapted his own work from the stage to the screen.

The original work was performed to sold-out audiences in Wexford in 2014 and revolves around a group of four friends in a small Irish town.

O’Brien states: “I just knew these characters had more to say, more to do. When the run was over I asked the actors and crew involved if they’d like to join me in expanding and re- inventing this for the screen. Everyone was in.”

Highwind Media produced to no-budget feature film, with Sundance Award-winning film makers the Barnes Brothers coming on board as executive producers. The pair are helping to champion the film on the US festival scene.

Also on board as an executive producer is bestselling author Eoin Colfer, whose praise of the project extends from the script to the actors and quality of storytelling:

“The movie unfolds in a unique, lush package that hangs together so well because of the craft of the script; the amazing first-time screen performances, and the gentleness of the storytelling. To see all of these all of these characteristics come together in a first time movie makes it irresistible. Staid signals the arrival of a new, important voice in Irish cinema.”

‘Staid’ was shot in Wexford, and picked up the award for Best Foreign Feature at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival in April of this year.
