Barry's movie 'Nymph' hits silver screen
DUNDALK screenwriter Barry Keating celebrated the production of his first movie 'Nymph'
The former The Argus film reviewer has co-written 'Nymph', with Serbian directors Milan Konjevic and Marko Backovic, which is currently debuting at an international film festival in Berlin.
Barry, son of Rosemary and Frank Keating, from Mount Avenue, started out in journalism, writing a film column before moving to the UK to study screenwriting for film and TV.
He continued to write while there, having articles published in the likes of DVD Review, HotDog, Total Film and Empire, to name but a few.
Barry then co-wrote a comic based on George Romero's Day of the Dead with his friend Sam Hutchinson.
The comic was nominated for an award at a horror festival in Italy and it was there he met the Serbian directors, Milan and Marko.
When he got a chance to work on Milan and Marko's horror flick, Nymph, he was thrilled.
Eic Pictures Group will handle the worldwide rights to 'Nymph', which is based around a killer mermaid and which stars screen legend Franco Nero (Die Hard 2, Django Unchained), Kristina Klebe (Halloween, Proxy) and Natalie Burn (The Expendables 2).
