Film Production Notes:
Prodigal Son was shot over four days in ten locations across Dublin, Ireland. The film's cast includes one of Ireland's finest young actors Ryan Andrews (The Pool, Frankie, The Clinic, Fair City), Irish stage and screen stalwart Padraig Murray (The Guards, The Clinic) and US TV actor Mark Schrier (Murder, Sex and the City).
Written and directed by Dublin playwright CJ Scuffins, the short marks his first foray into film. Producer Eilis Mernagh funded the film by raising several thousand Euros via film loving contacts on Facebook.
Award-winning cinematographer Piers McGrail (The Silver Bow, You're Only What I See Sometimes) shot Prodigal Son on Red Camera One and award-winning soundtrack artist Louise Heaney (Tufty, Prinessa) scored the film.
Prodigal Son is being distributed on the international festival circuit in 2011. The film is the first release from new Irish production company, Story Factory.
