New Grant – New Film
Rade in collaboration with writer Rodney Lee was awarded a grant from CREATE. The Artist in the Community Grant gives Rodney the opportunity to write another script and work with RADE participants to produce a film next year. This follows on the huge success of “Irish Light vs Tony” that was produced in 2017. Acting workshops are to begin in November 2017 and shooting will be in January. Very exciting times for RADE.
Quotes about “Irish Light vs Tony”
It is fabulously written. Clever, incisive, political, it is on the money. It reminded me of Monty Python with its wonderful attack on bureaucracy and capitalism. The concept of paying for the light is superb……. Brilliant………. And it works because it takes it seriously and never descends into silliness. The production is excellent and all aspects of film making are there, realised at the highest level.
Irish Light vs. Tony; all the actors in it are from the programme. It’s a parody and comical satire on the government’s Irish Water fiasco, and on modern-day bureaucracy, that endless torture of form-filling and departments and managers, and overseers, and the wrong office, and the wrong building.
