Digs For Pennies is a community led short film project from Waterford-based Dream Boat Productions working in association with Central Arts and with support from the Department of the Taoiseach, Waterford City & County Council, Q1 Scientific, Clem Jacob Hire, Build Direct, MCX Training, Central Arts, St.Paul’s Boxing Club, Waterford Youth Arts, WLR and the new Waterford Film Centre.

The most ambitious film project shot in Waterford since Stanley Kubrick shot the multi-Oscar winning Barry Lyndon, it follows a bareknuckle boxer and his manager in post-famine Ireland as they struggle to save enough money to emigrate.

All of the Digs for Pennies crew are donating their time for free – including producer, director, director of photography, sound department, art direction, costume department, hair and makeup.

All that is needed now are extras so if YOU want to get involved head to Central Arts on Saturday 6th August between 12-6pm, or send your details to casting@dreamboat.tv to book a time slot.

Address: Central Arts, 123A Parade Quay, Co. Waterford

Phone: 086 454 3246
