Principal photography will begin next week on James Fitzgerald’s latest short film, The Invisible Boy. Filming will last 5 days in James’ home county of Waterford.
When a young girl goes missing in a small town, a troubled fisherman is forced to deal with the past that destroyed his family.
The principal role is played by Darren Cahill (Vikings, Red Rock). Ryan McParland (Tale of Tales, Kissing Candice), Carrie Crowley (Extra Ordinary, Acceptable Risk), and Don Wycherley (Sing Street, Veronica Guerin) will play supporting roles.
Colm Hogan is director of photography on The Invisible Boy. With over 20 years experience in the film industry, Colm has shot music videos for Dermot Kennedy, Saint Sister & Talos as well as acclaimed TV series An Klondike and Eipic.
Colin Campbell will edit the film, having recently edited successful Irish films, The Hole in the Ground, Michael Inside, and The Young Offenders.
The film is produced by Séamus Waters for Whim Films in association with Sonny London & Anorak Film Berlin.
Skunky Dog, James’ graduation short film, found critical acclaim picking up a string of prestigious awards, including three Royal television awards and an IFTA nomination. Subsequently, James has spent the last few years directing music videos for labels such as Sony, Universal, and Warner Brothers. He is now represented for commercials by top companies Sonny for the UK market, Anorak for Germany, and Antidote for the Irish market.
We have a really exciting team and cast behind this film. It’s something I’ve been living with and working on for over a year, so I feel very close to it. I’m really looking forward to just getting down there now and shooting the hell out of it.James Fitzgerald
