    Hi, share this trip to Ireland

    This short was filmed in Wicklow and is now at the end of its festival run.

    ‘Ah you’ll be grand’

    Last year Calvin Doyle & myself, Conor English, undertook our first venture into narrative filmmaking, it was our first time doing such a project but we were confident that our vision would produce a unique perspective into Irish storytelling and we aim to continue to build upon this as we make our way into this wonderful industry. Now, we would love to show you.

    Crafted as a mystery thriller, Live Psychic is fuelled by its dreamy atmosphere, surrealist imagery and dark Irish humour, It follows the path of a psychic in a small midlands town in Ireland, comforting and consulting those in need of her guidance, however, her visions turn to nightmares as they uncover a harsh reality.
