The final sessions of acting training have come to an end for the sixty six actors taking part in the Presentation Castleisland ‘Night at the OsKaRs’ series of short films based on cinema classics. 

Locations and costumes have been sorted and all that remains is the mastering of accents and fine tuning of lines ahead of the two weekends of filming beginning on Saturday, March 25th under the direction of Kevin Rowe Events.

Each film will require up to five hours of footage, that will result in approximately 10 minutes for the finished film.
