The 'devasdating' Angela Walsh

I recently had the chance to work alongside the talented Angela Walsh on the set of her short film 'Devasdating' which was directed by Simon Temple and shot by DOP Mark Broadbent.

The short comedy featured Angela in the lead role of Nadia, a 45 year old woman facing a line up of miss-matched dinner dates played by some great local talent including Damien Garvey (Bait/Rake), Steven Tandy (The Sullivans/Getting Squared), Troy Mackinder (Deception), alongside Andrew Buchanan, Todd Levi, Sandro Colarelli, Daniel Murphy and Kevin Spink.

Am looking forward to seeing the completed film but for now here are some of the stills I shot on set.

Since completing Tin God; Reedy, McMeeking and Dinsey collaborated again on 'Loyalty' which will be released in 2012. Currently Reedy and McMeeking are in development on their third film 'Heartless' while Dinsey has just wrapped shooting on her third feature length film 'One June Afternoon'.

Tin God is a rare breakthrough in the era of big budget cinema, this low budget drama has battled against the odds to finally find it's way to the public this alone is a tribute to the strength of the performances and the raw vision of the filmmakers.
