What happened that fateful night on 'Mourneview Drive', and more importantly, will returning 30years later give Bucky the redemption he seeks?
‘Mourneview Drive’ (2013) is my latest drama piece. The overall project was a real test for me as filmmaker. I was seeking an overall high quality production as well as delivering a short story with character and substance. The short film was collaboratively written, produced and directed largely by myself. The scripts all exterior locations were created and filmed in an interior shoot studio environment. A challenge I feel was a moderate success was creating the cinematic essence of time and space of an exterior setting in an interior shoot studio location. The short film's artistic creative elements were largely created and supported by the highly skilled artistic force of Staffordshire University. Something I am very proud to say.' - Ruairi Cahill (Director)
