In 1973 Stanley Kubrick arrived in Ireland to commence shooting of Barry Lyndon, widely regarded as one of Kubrick's best films but also one of the most beautiful films committed to celluloid.
As the legend goes, one night Kubrick upped and left Ireland after receiving a threatening call... No one knows the real story.
Kubrick By Candlelight is a romantic comedy set behind the scenes of the making of Barry Lyndon and our love affair between an Irish extra and an English assistant director interweaves with the real story of that infamous call....
Starring Darragh O'Toole, from TV3 and BBC1's Red Rock and soon to be released South and Amy Hughes from BBC2's We're Doomed: The Dad's Army Story.
Joining the cast is Mark Griffin, Mark Webb, Lisa Moore, the amazing Al Foran and last but by no means least the incredible Phelim Drew.
It's a vastly ambitious project set in 1973 but also 1770 so costumes, vehicles and locations are our greatest need. It's a very exciting project which has already received a lot of press coverage and we plan to show it film festivals around the world and ultimately make a feature film.
Risks and challenges
Our challenge is the scope and ambition of the project. We're shooting at the beginning of December so this project is happening - actors are booked, locations confirmed - we need more money to make it super special and elevate the film to higher levels....Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
