OC Productions' Feature Film 'Tradition' Moves To Post-Production Following Successful Shoot In Kerry
27 Apr 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Principal photography has wrapped on OC Productions second feature film ‘Tradition’ following on from the production company's debut feature ‘The Gift’, which released nationwide in April 2017.

‘Tradition’ tells the story of a Judge who, on his last day on the bench finds himself presiding over the most controversial case that his court and his town has ever seen.

‘Tradition’ is a feel good family friendly comedy drama that has been described as a modern day version of The Quiet Man.

Speaking about the film & crew, Writer/Director Damien O’Callaghan told IFTN:

“It’s about a referee who made a controversial decision in an All Ireland club championship game. The judge is in mid-life and wondering if he made the right decision to become a judge.”

"I couldn't ask for a better cast and crew who always practiced that Muskateer ''All for One and One for All'' Attitude, which was pivotal in making this feature a great feature.

"We are hoping to have Tradition Festival ready for the Summer and have it's world premiere in Ireland, which is the spiritual home of the production."

 

The film is written by Damien O’Callaghan & Claire Corrigan, while O’Callghan also directs. Cast on the project includes Paul Ronan (‘Veronica Guerin, ‘The General’), Pascal Scott (‘The Young Offenders’), Brian Harty, and James Daly. The cinematographer on the project is Conor Fleming (‘The Young Offenders’, Poison Pen’), and it is being edited by Declan O’Shea.

Centred on the controversial decision of a referee in an All-Ireland club championship game, the feature also includes appearances from legendary RTÉ commentator Micheál Ó Muírcheartaigh & Broadcaster Marty Morrissey (‘Dancing with the Stars’), as well as comedy legend Brendan Grace.

The project is completely self-financed with none of the €150k budget being generated from any state body funding decisions or grants.

‘Tradition’ was shot on location in Killarney, Co. Kerry, which has been home to O’Callaghan for the past twenty-one years.
