What’s Next Films, the newly-formed production outlet from Margaret McGoldrick and Leo McGuigan, have today committed to Photobomb, the new short film from writer-director Jim McMorrow. McMorrow recently won the Director’s Choice award at the Film Devour Festival in Belfast for his debut short, Spots.
What’s Next will co-produce alongside McMorrow’s own That’s Not Winston Productions. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the short is expected to start lensing before the end of the year.
Indie producers Margaret McGoldrick and Leo McGuigan have set up What’s Next Films.
The NI-based production outlet will assume all rights to the upcoming slasher thriller Braxton as well as McGoldrick’s recently completed war drama Waiting Game. In addition, both McGuigan and McGoldrick will develop new projects under the banner through 2015.
The pair have shuttered their former production venture, McGoldrick/McGuigan Productions but will remain a producing duo at What’s Next.
McGoldrick and McGuigan have produced a slew of award-winning shorts, including Cody and Echoes of Anna, now available online.
The plan is for the pair to develop shorts, features and pilots. McGoldrick is currently working on her directorial follow-up to Waiting Game, an as-yet-untitled romantic drama, while McGuigan continues post duties on the newly-completed feature Braxton, aiming for a release sometime in Q4 of 2015.
