‘Coast’ – Nearly Here!

The new website for Coast has arrived! And just in time for a screening in early March with other innovative indie films as part of the C-Project.

The idea for Coast came from a simple conversation between Alan and Christopher on a day out along the coastal walks of Whitehead. Here’s what they had to say about it:

It was a privilege to be a part of this exciting project and to work such a great cast and crew.  I can’t wait to see the end product!

The beautiful “Coast”…

Next week the cameras roll on new drama Coast. It’s the first of six episodes and is the brainchild of Northern Ireland’s answer to the Coen Brothers, Alan Stewart and Chris McClenaghan.

Here’s a bit about it:

“The idea for Coast came from a simple conversation between Alan and Christopher on a day out along the coastal walks of Whitehead. As it often does with these two, the conversation soon turned to film as they realised the possibilities of the scenery they were passing through on their walk.

The entire idea was directly inspired by the unique coastline landscape of Co. Antrim. Due to their working relationship and how in tune they are with each other’s way of thinking, Alan and Chris had created the bulk of the story for a pilot episode, and the bones of an over arching plot for a six episode season of ‘Coast’, all before they returned from their walk.”

I’ll be taking on the role of Chris who, with a group of office workers, decides to get out of Belfast city and head for the north coast of Ireland. Upon spending the day at a deserted beach they return to find their car stolen. Alone and without communication, they are faced with a long walk back across the coast or a longer walk back through the deserted country roads to the nearest town. Things only get worse for the group when they discover they are being stalked…

Chris McClenaghan and Alan Stewart will be co-directing and Marty Stalker will be director of photography.
