Jamey-Sheridan

New project alert! For his next film, Jim Sheridan is seizing upon a true story about the Maze Prison escape, which was known as the Great Escape when the story unfolded in Northern Ireland. The three-time Oscar-nominated writer-director has just cast Cillian Murphy (Dunkirk, Inception) and Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan to lead the cast, with Pierce Brosnan in talks to also join H-Block.

The story is about an escape from the maximum-security prison that became a source of propaganda used by the IRA. Thirty-eight prisoners escaped from H-Block with only 19 recaptured. In the escape, one officer died of a heart attack after being stabbed (one of four injured that way). In all, 20 were injured including being stabbed or shot; one prison officer was shot in the head but survived. The escape was a violent breakout that included hostage taking and ended up being the biggest in both British and Irish history.

Murphy stars as the head of the ring of IRA prisoners who has earned the respect of the prison guards but now just wants a life of peace.The gritty role for Dornan is a decided turn from what the actor has been doing and gives him a chance to really let loose and show his acting chops as an IRA prisoner and orderly who starts discovering weaknesses in the prison. He also is one of the last IRA prisoners to agree to the escape — but leave he does and with a vengeance on the way out.The role for Brosnan would be a good one for him for the same reasons as he would play the antagonist — warden of the Maze Prison who is pitted against the escapees.

They are FACTS; and there lives one whose authority none would venture to question, who could vindicate the accuracy of every statement which I have set down, and that, too, with all the circumstantiality-of an eye witness.

My graduating film, High Spined Noon

Thesis film from Sheridan College Animation graduating class of 2017
A dangerous but cycloptic desperado strolls into the sleepy town of Boerne Texas. There the only one that can stop him is the sheriff, a native Acrocanthosaurus.

I had a lot of fun making this film and hope to soon complete the entirety of it. My hometown of Boerne holds a special place in my heart. I wanted to commemorate all of the fun I had with all of the lovely people and beautiful scenery.

I’m very happy of what I’ve done but I plan on finishing the whole film soon!

Thank you all who’ve supported me along the way

Rewatching Days of Future Past (or literally any other men movie) is sorta weird because you’ll feel so happy and hopeful for these characters but you’ll suddenly remember that in a few years time they’ll all die a horrible fucking death (most in the hands of their beloved professor) and then you just
