Our client, up-and-coming production company, Plain Sailing Films, has launched its debut feature-length film, Shoebox Memories, and we were delighted to work with them on the exclusive screening of the film last Thursday, 11th February at Film Base, Temple Bar. The event was attended by a number of influencers, bloggers and media, and was received very well by all.
Shoebox Memories is a love story inspired by music. It follows jaded and heart-broken musician, Chris (Colm Gavin) as he meets new girl, Emma Jane (Jemma NicLochlainn). The two embark on a no-strings-attached relationship, but Chris struggles against falling in love all over again. While experiencing the highs and lows of his new found relationship, Chris deals with his feelings and frustrations the only way he knows how, by playing music. The film also features talented Irish actor Brendan Sheehan, brother of popular Irish actor Robert Sheehan.
Blogger Lorna Duffy of fashionboss.ie said of the film, ‘’The music and overall ‘Irish lads’ humour had us all hooked within minutes,’’ while Evoke said ‘’Getting all the feels at #ShoeboxMemories such a good film!’’ The event was a huge success, and a number of other influencers and media who attended have written rave reviews about the film.
The screening was also followed by a Q&A with the director Jason Branagan and the leading actors. This was a great chance for the audience to learn about how the movie was made. Jason explained how he started his career as a singer/songwriter and turned this passion into a film that is centered on music. He also told the audience how the movie isn’t your typical rom-com as he wanted to showcase relationships you don’t ordinarily see in films.
Plain Sailing Films is an exciting new production company, launched by director Jason Branagan and film and music producer Laurance Meade, and we’re so excited to be working with them. Their debut is one of only 10 films that was selected for the prestigious Dingle International Film Festival and we can expect lots of exciting new projects from their company in the coming months. #watchthisspace
