A local filmmaker is seeking extras for two shoots in Boyle and Dromahair next week.

Megan Devaney from Dromahair is directing a short film supported by the Kevin Spacey Foundation and is looking for enthusiastic extras to take part.

“Out of Misery” is a short comedy film about a boy called Cal who mistakenly believes his parents are planning to murder his senile Granddad and takes it upon himself to save the day.

The film is doing a number of local shoots, but are seeking extras for just two occasions.

The first scene requiring extras will be in Boyle, Co Roscommon this Sunday July 24. The filmmakers are looking for men only for the scene in Boyle.

If you are more of a vintage age, the production are seeking out “older extras” of mixed gender for a wake scene shooting near Dromahair next Wednesday, July 27.

Megan Devaney and Finbarr Crotty of Bear Print Films won the UK Film category with this film for funding and mentoring to up-and-coming artists from the Kevin Spacey Foundation.

Through their student work together at the National Film School of Ireland they have garnered acclaim at both national and international film awards.
