#IrishShortFilm: Principal photography wraps on Cashell Horgan’s Told You

Principal photography has wrapped on writer/director Cashell Horgan’s latest short film, Told You, which was awarded funding by the Limerick Arts Office film bursary scheme.

The 10 minute short film tells the story of a young boy’s fear of the dark and a monster hiding in the house.  But he has a hard time trying to convince his parents the monster is real. The film is set in the 80’s and aimed for family audiences.

The principal role of the young boy is played by 7 year old Limerick actor Elliott O Donoghue. Joe Mullins (The Clockmakers Dream) plays the father and Hanna Osborne (A Very Irish Family) plays the role of the young boy’s mother. Jass Foley (The Hit Producer) is DOP, with Joe Mullins and Linhong Yang producing for Made Image Films. 

Told You is Made Image’s second short that has been awarded funded by the Limerick Arts Office. The first was The Clockmakers Dream, which received 30 awards on the festival circuit after its release in 2016.

It was great to be back and film in Limerick, I’m happy that we got to make the film,  It’s simple story but I think it will resonate with everyone who’s been afraid of ‘things that go bump in the night’ and it puts forward the real monster can be the people around us at times. I’m very happy with the results and the talent and crew we had. It was Elliot’s first time acting for film and I think he could have a bright future ahead of him.

Cashell Horgan, Writer/Director

Told You will begin its film festival circuit in 2019.
