Film debut in Tomato Can

Westside Student Amy Macken makes her film debut in Tomato Can with Fastnet Docs directed by Ciaran Cassidy casting by Louise Kiely Casting.

February saw Amy Macken play her first screen role along side Michael Power and Liam Carney with Fastnet Docs. Tomato Can and Irish Film Board Short tells the story of Danny ‘Danger’ Kelly a retired journeyman boxer who has nothing to lose when accepting a last minute offer of a fight but unfortunately has plenty to forget. This witty but poignant tale is told through the eyes of Leah his daughter (Amy Macken).

This short was written and directed by Ciaran Cassidy who’s recent production The Last Days of Peter Bergmann has seen him collect awards and nominations across the globe at Sundance Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Melbourne Film Festival, Camden International Film Festival and an IFTA for Best Short Film.

We are delighted for our student and can’t wait to see the final cut.
