New York connectionsJune 8th, 2008
Last year, while on holidays in New York, I filmed a short movie trailer about an Irish gangster called ‘CONMAN’ who was being hunted down by the CIA. Would he elude them and escape to Shanghai with his briefcase full of _____ ???
I blagged my way into having full use of the Fitzpatrick Hotel in Manhattan for the day of filming there & connected with my cast & crew on Craigslist. We filmed it all in one weekend and the budget was only a few hundred dollars. New York actors can are very generous with their time for the right projects but you’ve got to sell the idea to them.
So if you want to do a video commercial for your band or a company in an cool city far away from home, there is nothing stopping you with the internet as your connector.
For those not so sure, feel free to contact conor [at] connector.ie
“”CONMAN is a stylish & fast paced thriller set in the greedy underworlds of New York, Shanghai & Dublin. The elusive CONMAN has escaped from Dublin to the United States and is on his way to China.
In a world where information is power, what is in the mystery briefcase handcuffed to his wrist ? Well must be interesting as now the CIA are hot on his heels … Watch the trailer now and see it soon in your local cinema & remember, ‘It’s a lot more fun if you don’t get caught!’.
