Stage 3 | A

Meet The Contestants | Audition & Casting Night | Meeting The Producers | Launch Night | Drama Coaching | Filming & Movie Editing

Once you have gathered your Contestants, our Drama Coach & Producer will initially hold anAudition/Casting Night. At this Night your would-be Actors and Actresses will be accessed and assigned their Movies and Roles. Our Drama Coach will ensure there is a suitable role for all. There are 7 Movies in total with up to 60 Actors. 7 Movie Producers will also be elected in addition to the Executive Producer from the Club.

The Clubs Executive Producer will be responsible for managing these 7 Movie Producers (who will be volunteers from your Club). Our Drama Coach and Event Producer will meet with these Volunteer Producers on the Casting Night, after the Casting Night, to explain their roles and answer any questions they might have. This will happen directly after the Casting is complete on the Night. The Club should start the process of recruiting these prior to the Casting Night and all Producers should be in attendance on this very important night in the timeline of the event.

You now have your Casts confirmed & your Launch Night takes place ahead of the Tuition. The Launch Night is followed by 5 Weeks Drama Coaching and 2 Weekends of Filming


Once the Casting Night has taken place, an Event & Media Launch Night can take place. In attendance on the night will be all the Contestant Actors/Producers, plus Members of the Club and the Contestant’s Supporters and Friends. Our MC will then announce which Movie/Film they will be appearing in, and the Part/Role they have been assigned. Casts will join the MC for an Interview and Photo opportunity.

After the Launch Night has taken place and the Movies casts are confirmed, the Contestant Fundraising part of the event begins with Contestants seeking Movie Sponsors, Contestant Sponsors/Sponsorship Cards, and selling Tickets to Family and Friends. General Tickets will be on Sale throughout the Club also. The Advertising and Sponsorship Manager will be working hard during this period to get additional Adverts (Full Pages and Half Pages) in the Souvenir Booklet for the Night.



Once the Launch Night is complete and everyone knows their Part/Role, it is time to Practice, Practice, and Practice. Our Drama Coach will be with your Contestants for 4/5 weeks in advance of the Filming Shoot Weekends to ensure everyone is ready for the Big Day, usually training 1 Night each week, with every film getting at least 2 Sessions over this period.



The Movies will be made in various locations in the community, adding a real local spin to the event. Usually, the 7 Movies will be filmed over 2 consecutive weekends (Friday & Saturday) after the period of Drama Coaching and Auditions. Our team will advise your Contestants on all Locations, Props, Style, and Costumes



There is usually a gap of between 2-3 weeks between the Filming and The Live Show. During this time our Editing Team will be busy Editing the Movies. As the Movies are edited and signed off, we will be releasing small 45/60 Second Movie Trailers. These can be posted to Social Media Channels and they will create the first glimpse of the Movies and create a great Buzz in the Club and Community!

Stage 3 | B

It’s Showtime – The Live Show

The LIVE Show | The Award Ceremony
Once all the Movies are Filmed and Edited it’s time to Roll out the Red Carpet and have your very own Night at the Movie Awards Ceremony. Usually, a Club would book a local Hotel or Venue suitable for the event. Having created some of Ireland’s Biggest Professional Award Ceremonies, our Production Team will create the Movie Awards Ceremony using Professional Drapes, AV, Stage, PA, and Lighting, plus Red Carpet, Red Ropes and Stanchions, Life Size Oscars Statues, and our Giant LED Video Wall. The Movie Casts will arrive in slots and have their very own Red Carpet Interview with our MC, Filmed and Photographed by our Team for Post Event Edits.

Like any Awards Ceremony there will be Awards for the Best Movie, Highest Grossing Movie (ie: Most Raised for your Club), Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, plus many more including Best Individual Fundraiser. On the Night, once everyone is in the Room, we will launch the Movie Reels and Premier all 7 Movies. Our Top Class MC will introduce each movie, with Judges’ comments and votes, and interviews with the cast after each Movie. And the Winner is…?

Although there is no obligation to Dress to any code for the night, it is a great opportunity for the Club Members to Dress, Red Carpet Style! Some Clubs offer Prizes for
the Best Dressed Lady and Best Dressed Male on the Night. Our Entrance Photographer will ensure he gets as many groups photographed at the entrance for the Post Event Gallery.

Once the Main Event is complete it is time to either have a VIP After Party Disco in the Venue, or some Clubs may prefer to head back to their own Pub or Club. This will be advertised extensively as we want Guests to enjoy a full night of entertainment and buzz.
