Film Limerick Trilogy

The Film Limerick Trilogy

The special screening of the Film Limerick Trilogy is taking place on Friday 15th at 8pm in the Millennium Theatre, LIT.

This ambitious project was realised by Film Limerick Project Manager Ronan Cassidy and acclaimed Limerick writer and director Gerry Stembridge, with the support of Behind the Scenes in partnership with Limerick City of Culture. The scheme also received assistance from Screen Training Ireland.

The idea behind the project was a way of providing training and experience for those seeking to break into the film industry. Three short films were produced using local filmmakers mentored by industry professionals. Gerard Stembridge selected three writers from Behind The Scenes and worked with these writers individually to make each script as good as it could be. He also took an overview, looking for connecting features and elements that would create links between the stories.

The writers were given maximum freedom to tell whatever story they wanted to tell. The stories had to be contemporary and preferably unfold within a limited time period and Limerick City itself was to be evident as the backdrop. The use of locations in the city is therefore at the heart of each of the films. Even though the films are quite separate stories and work as stand-alone films, seen together they are subtlety linked.

Three teams were put together with everyone who took part gaining invaluable experience from top industry professionals. The teams consisted of three first time writers and three first time directors. In addition there were DOP’s, sound operators, set designers, wardrobe, make-up, hair etc., each team being mentored by designated industry professionals.

Gerard Stembridge worked with the directors on casting to secure the best available local talent for the individual films. He also oversaw the filming and mentored the directors on set and ensured that the important linking elements between the stories were taken care of, so that the final product would stand up as a single entity.

Mentor Gerard Stembridge, three writers and three directors all from Limerick, set about creating three short films to be shot in Limerick, featuring a cast of local actors. The films can stand alone but are also a trilogy, linked and intertwined in a number of subtle ways, not least the presence of the city itself as a character across all three films. Come see how this genuine community film project came together.

Out of Nothing Premiere

Out of Nothing Poster

SYNOPSIS

From the Pacific Northwest to Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats, this is the inspiring true story of four tenacious men who risk everything to conquer the records of motorcycle land speed racing.

Brothers Mark & Carl Bjorklund team up with friends Jason Omer and Bill Woods to overcome nearly impossible odds. They must work together as they battle mounting obstacles such as financial hardships, family issues, anxiety disorder, in-team conflict, severe weather, and hundreds of other racers… all while attempting to set records at breakneck speeds on homemade machines.

With each of the four men entering their own bike into the competition, they quickly discover that leaning on each other for help and resources just may be the most powerful tool of all. Showcasing valuable messages that apply to anyone who’s ever had a dream, their extraordinary journey will remind you how perseverance against all odds can send the most unlikely men roaring into glory.

The premiere of Out of Nothing takes place on Saturday 16th at 2pm in the Millennium Theatre, LIT, Limerick.
