“By any standards this was an ambitious undertaking by our former and current trainees that stands up to critical scrutiny,” according to Brian Nolan, instructor and driving force behind the expansion of the Digital Production Course at Kerry ETB Training Centre.

He added; “’Making It’ is an original comedy feature about family man, Mike McMahon who loses his job and decides to enter a filmmaking competition to win a big cash prize. His efforts soon land him in hot water with both sides of the law and the whole thing is a massive disaster with shootouts in Listowel, car chases around Kerry and plenty of interesting local characters getting involved”.

“Making It” was written by Eamonn Norris and Fred O’Connor, an original story which was developed with Brian Nolan.

Eamon Norris and Fred O’Connor were former trainees at Kerry ETB Training Centre. Eamonn is now a director with Ros Na Run on TG4 and Fred works with Brown Bag Animation studios in Dublin.

The film was directed by Eamonn Norris.  It stars Seamus Hughes, Moya Farrelly and Elaine Kennedy as well as a host of Kerry actors.

Brian Nolan said this ambitious film got great co-operation from the whole community and it was a great learning opportunity for their current trainees.

“It’s a huge exercise in professional co-operation from all the key areas like, lighting, camera operators, sound technicians and the whole production team.  The logistics and challenges that are involved in making a full length feature film are daunting. You have to find a good story, write a good script, audition a cast – mainly amateurs from all over Kerry – then find locations here in Kerry and get the co-operation of the Guards, particularly when the plot involved a bank robbery and a shoot-out in Listowel”.

“Making It’…will leave you laughing and smiling with the great humour in this movie” according to  reviewers in Film Ireland and Entertainment Mojo. See a trailer for the movie below…
