Dunnylane Productions and Angry Productions

Director of Angry Productions, Tom Vogel, met the Dunnylane Productions team when he was the lead role in the short horror film “Ivy”. He proposed a collaboration between the two production houses which “The Good Samaritan” was the end result of. Tom had the idea from a joke someone told him. He turned this idea into a five page script, shot it the next day with the help of the Dunnylane Productions crew and it was edited the same night by the exceptional Marcela Olea.
Currently the two production companies are in talks with Happening People who are interested in buying the rights to sell it to overseas pay television stations.
