We are about to launch our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise necessary finance for this groundbreaking project. Here are a few sneak preview stills from our “pitch video,” which will explain why this film MUST be made. We are proud to have a very talented and dedicated group of artists, writers, historians and family members of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising supporting our film.
We were particularly heartened by these words from Moira Grant-Mylonas, the grandniece of Seán Mac Diarmada, who we interviewed at Seán’s childhood home:
“I’m just amazed that my great-uncle Seán went from this tiny little house in this tiny little town land of Corranmore in County Leitrim to end up in the ranks of the true Irish heroes. This team of filmmakers, headed by Kevin McCann, certainly deserve our support in getting this movie made.”
Thanks to everyone who has participated in our Kickstarter video, and thank you for visiting our page.
