ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

STALKER is Irish director Mark O’ Connor’s third feature length film. The film strives to be original, dark and something that will travel the world and interest audiences everywhere. We decided to seek private investment and donations to make this film. It can take up to two years to finance a film through funding bodies such as the Irish Film Board. With STALKER we wanted to make something raw, interesting and low budget. We have a team of young Irish filmmakers and actors with a great deal of experience and passion.

OUR PLAN:

Your money will help us succeed. Mark shot his first feature Between the Canals inside 12 days 3 years ago. Once wrapped, we will do post production over the course of 6 weeks with a view to submitting our film into film festivals all over the world. We will start with the Galway Film Fleadh next July. Our intention is then to try and distribute the film in cinemas and DVD's across the country and throughout the world.

SYNOPSIS:

Quiet homeless man Oliver Nolan wanders the streets of Dublin and starts a friendship with a young disaffected teenager named Tommy. Tommy’s mother is an addict who owes money to Tommy’s Uncle Rudyard, an upper class drug dealer. When Oliver learns that Tommy is dealing drugs for Rudyard he begins to stalk Rudyard and his gang of criminals. Through flashbacks to Oliver’s childhood we learn how he became homeless and mentally ill. As Tommy’s mother’s drug habit increases Oliver finds himself having to rescue Tommy from his situation while also facing up to his past demons.

BIOGRAPHIES:

Mark O'Connor's debut feature film funded by the Irish film Board which he wrote and directed was Between the Canals starring Peter Coonan and Irish singer Damien Dempsey. Between the Canals was highly acclaimed with Film Ireland calling it ‘The best Irish film in a long long time’. It received four stars from Entertainment.ie. Mark’s second feature film King of the Travellers was also funded by the Irish Film Board, TV3 and BAI. It is a revenge tragedy set in the travelling community starring a full cast of real Irish travellers and will be out in cinemas in late 2012.

In February 2011 Peter was cast in the critically acclaimed RTE drama LOVE/HATE, where he plays tough man Fran.
