The Reel OSCAReS Horror Show 2020
Welcome to the 2020 Reel OSCAReS Horror Show Awards Ceremony.
On a dark Winter's Eve under a misty stained Dublin sky, our gruesome gang of ghouls gathered to present the awards for artistic merit in the horror film industry.
Tune in to hear Conor McMahon, Sarah Cleary, Ali Doyle and Paul Farren bare their fangs and flex their chainsaws and announce the nominations and winners in the following categories:
Ciaran Cassidy, Director of 'Jihad Jane'
In this podcast Gemma Creagh talks to Ciaran Cassidy, whose film Jihad Jane is in cinemas Friday, 14th February.
In March 2010, the arrest on terror charges of a blonde haired, blue-eyed, American woman who called herself ‘Jihad Jane’ made headlines worldwide and was described as the 'new front in the war on terrorism.' The story of Coleen LaRose, a forty six-year-old woman, who had radicalised in rural Pennsylvania led the evening news bulletins. What made the case more surreal and confusing was the arrest of another American woman, Jamie Paulin Ramirez, a Colorado native — this time in Waterford, Ireland.
In this podcast, Ciaran talks about his film plus
getting into film
his first films and learning the process of filmmaking
his approach to storytelling and its different genres
what draws him to particular stories
how the story unravelled
the characters involved
positioning the story and maintaining a balance
the editing process
