Would you like to recreate a famous Hollywood movie scene? Fancy feeling like a movie star? What about a night on the red carpet? We want Mater staff to take part in, or attend, the Oskars – a night of glamour and fame supporting patient care in the Mater Hospital!
We all know of the Oscars: Hollywood’s most famous night, where the entire movie industry comes together to celebrate the best productions, most enigmatic characters, and the inspiration that goes into the films we love.
On 10th November 2017, the Oskars – the Mater Hospital’s answer to Hollywood’s event – will take place in the Helix, Dublin. You can either take part in the filming of movie scenes or support your colleagues by attending the event.
We are looking for Mater Hospital staff (individuals, colleagues, departments) to come together and recreate scenes from some incredible movies, such as Forrest Gump and The Shawshank Redemption. No acting experience is required and the scenes will be filmed in the weeks preceding the Oskars Awards Night.
- Casting takes place on 20th September between 10 am and 2 pm in the Freeman Auditorium in the Mater Hospital. If you are unavailable then, it might be possible to arrange another time.
- 4 training sessions (including acting classes) will take place on 25th September, 2nd October, 9th October, and 16th October
- Filming on location happens between 21st October and 29th October. There is a 4.5 hour commitment for this, with times to be agreed.
- The Oskars ceremony takes place in The Helix on Friday 10th November and will include awards for Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Actor, Highest Grossing Movie, and Highest Individual Fundraiser.
The Oskars will support End-of-Life Family Rooms and the Hostel Accommodation in the Mater Hospital, so we want all aspiring actors to raise as much funds as possible to improve these vital patient and family services!
Each actor must raise at least €300!
If you’re not taking part, then why not attend the event! Tickets are €30 per person and the On-Sale date will be announced in an All-Staff email soon and also be posted on this website. Remember, The Mater Does Strictly, last year’s hospital fundraiser, sold out in just 90 minutes!
To sign up for the event, or find out more about it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Mater Foundation on (01) 830 3482.
