About this project

BACKGROUND:   My Irish roots have always been a big part of my life. Growing up, there was one single story always floating around me, the story of a loved one's tragic death. Everybody who knew the story told me in a different way; some were half right, some were completely wrong, some only knew pieces. But that never stopped the tale from shaping my life. Kingscourt is a film about that story.

THE FILM:         The film is set on the day Michael plans to propose to Clara at a town celebration. He's expecting it to be the happiest day of his life. But, in the blink of an eye everything changes. The two are driving to announce their engagement when they are hit by a truck. 

PRODUCTION:   We plan on traveling back to my family's hometown in Ireland to shoot this film. By assembling both an Irish crew and an American crew, we hope to bring a truly authentic look and feel to the film. 

BUDGET BREAKDOWN:    So what is this money for? The production. This money will get our crew to Ireland and feed them. It will rent the equipment necessary to shoot. The rest will go towards paying  the actors and some of the crew for their time and hard work, if the budget allows.

CONTACT :      Please feel free to contact me at any time, with any questions or concerns. I hope you will take a look at the rewards listed on the side. Any amount will help make this film a reality. Thank you for your time, and your consideration. Here is my email: cbcarolan@gmail.com
