Work on The Machine the new collaborative short film between Brothers of Charity Waterford and Waterford Youth Arts began in early summer 2019 when Director Liam Meagher did a series of workshops with twenty service users and together they devised this script.
This very imaginative film script SuperHeros works as a comic book style involving new super hero's and baddies against a back drop of a fantastic new machine that can change humans into anything they have dreamed of. Camerawork is by Keith Currams, Editor is John Loftus.
When the caring role is reversed - 15 year old Lisa must hold everything together otherwise she could lose her mum and her brother
‘Who Cares’ is a short drama about two children who must care for their mother and themselves. Set in a working class community it looks at the stress and survival instincts of two young people who must cope with whatever is thrown at them.
Shot on location in St. Johns Park and starring Linda Gough, Jim Meagher, Mickey Power, Abi McCormick and Matthew Fitzpatrick. Directed by Liam Meagher and filmed by John Loftus with script by Ollie Breslin. The film is made by WYA Film Productions and funded through support from the Screenwriters and Producers Grants from Waterford Council Arts Office. The producers aim is that 'Who Cares' (working title) could become a mini-series which follows the story of the two main characters LISA aged 15 and LITTLE JIMMY aged 10 as they try and stay out of the reach of Social Services.
