The New Music (Feature Film)
The New Music is a zero budget, DIY Feature Film being produced in Ireland.
Here is our Official Teaser Trailer:
When 25 year old piano prodigy Adrian (Cilléin Mc Evoy) gets diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson's Disease, his life is completely derailed.
Failing to cope with his new situation, Adrian moves into a flat in Dublin with Will (Jack Fenton), David (Patrick O'Brien) and Jodie (Martina Babišová). Once his new housemates learn about his musical past, they offer him a spot as the keyboard player in their punk rock band - The Cellmates.
The New Music is being produced in association with Young Parkinson's Ireland.
As such, 20% of money raised from this fundraising campaign will go directly to this organisation.

We would like to take a moment to give our donors a big massive thank you for their support, it really has helped us a lot. Good news: we have completed our final edit - it is looking great, we are so so pleased about it and we can't wait for you to see it.
The next steps will include getting the sound mixed, special effects and the picture coloured to make it look as good as possible. Then it will be ready for festival entries! Hopefully somewhere near you.
