News & Events
Morrighan Films is looking busy for the coming year. We are in active production for Our Pagan Heart, an intimate look at what our faith means to us, and what our lives would be like in a village where Christianity and the industrial revolution didn’t happen. We will be filming for 2-3 days near every Sabbat from Imbolc 2011 until Yule 2012, we are looking for volunteer crew and actors, especially children. This is a labour of love for the production team, and the actors. But even passionate volunteers need food, equipment rentals and transportation. So, we are accepting donations of production funds and catering, and loans of wardrobe, props, and equipment.
We have recently finished filming a horror/ comedy short entitled “Cold Feet” starring Dwayne Desveaux and Melanie Eldridge, as well as one of our favourite actors, Douglas Connors. We are also happy that Morgan Blackbyrne was able to join us again.
Cold Feet will premiere at a micro film festival in May 2011

Morrighan Films was one of thirteen production groups involved in 2007's Digi 60 competition.
We wrote, filmed, edited and submitted our five minute civil war epic, "A Civil War", within sixty days. It was extremely challenging, but luck was with us, and we managed to film the entire thing in one fourteen hour day. We even got different weather for the different scenes, so that the war was shot in heavy rain, the homestead in glorious sunshine. Huge kudos to the cast and crew, who worked their butts off. It paid off at the screening, which was attended not only by the film crews and their friends & family, but by industry personnel as well. Some of those involved were: Laszlo Sijarto (as the evil brother), Morgan Blackbyrne (as the good brother), Kristina Kolmar (as the woman everyone wanted), and Tevon Kolmar (in his film debut). Also, Tim Harbinson (weapons and explosions), Jason Tetro (director), and Marie Douville as PA and general help.
Morrighan Films has recently completed work on two films for other production companies. We supplied makeup artists, actors, and technical crew.
