If you’re looking for something to put you in a merry mood this Christmas, look no further than the 12 Days of Grinchmas film!
Join Richard Lynch as Diva Grinch in her attempts to ruin the festive cheer in Wooooville from her grotto located along the banks of the Shannon.
“I wanted to give something to the people of Limerick to make you all smile and not ask for anything in return,” Richard told I Love Limerick.
“The short comedy film stars yours truly as Diva Grinch in ’12 Days of Grinchmas’, playing a demented female grinch who was determined to ruin Christmas and relishes terrorising the citizens of Wooooville (my beloved Limerick).”
Throughout the 12 Days of Grinchmas film, viewers will gasp at Diva Grinch’s attempts to put down the people of Limerick, infiltrate letters to Santa, tamper with presents from Santa’s sleigh and many other nefarious deeds, awww at her sad backstory, and cheer for her redemption once she meets the star of the season, Santa himself!
The film stars Tracey Aspel as a charity worker, Dermot Culhane as Santa, and Leanne Moore as herself, with special guests Jammy Makeup, Claire Culhane, Leo Culhane, Ellie Lynch and Lucy Casey.
The cinematography was done by Luke Culhane, who also did sound alongside Marcine Skutela. Editors were Richard Lynch and Luke Culhane, with graphic animation by Aladdin Studios, and production assistants were Kate Devaney and Colin Ryan.
“I wrote the script with brilliant improv comedian Tracy Aspel, my makeup was created by the genius Jammy Makeup, my wigs were made by John Harnett of Bellissimo Limerick, the costumes were created by Teaspach Theatre’s Sharon Kiely and all the sketches were filmed in September by filmmaking maestro Luke Culhane,” Richard explained.
“No matter what kind of year it is, you can guarantee me and the I Love Limerick crew will always be here to offer you good news and good fun throughout the whole year!”
The film is available to watch on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram, and includes each episode of the 12 Days of Grinchmas, so all you have to do is sit back with a hot drink, relax, hit play, and be ready to laugh your socks off!
