After having to keep quiet about it for a while, Joshua Smyth can now reveal his part alongside Liam Neeson, Bronagh Waugh and Suranne Jones in A Christmas Star.
The ‘unique, educational and cultural film’ will be screened by BBCNI and UTV simultaneously at Christmas 2015.
Cinemagic Chief Executive, Joan Burney Keatings, MBE said: “Our Christmas feature film will bring young people from different cultural backgrounds together, and representatives from the worlds of film, television and music will collaborate to celebrate creativity and highlight the importance of developing young people’s skills and offering them unique film and television related opportunities.
“The industry professionals will mentor the young cast and crew throughout the film production process from script to screen, giving invaluable insights to the world of filmmaking across various film disciplines ranging from directing, acting and production to script editing, film composition, and costume/makeup.
“The young people will finish the project with a wealth of skills, experience, and, most importantly, their first credit on a feature film.”
The film will shoot over three weeks around Belfast and Glenarm, and we can’t wait to see Joshua in it!
