Story of Mosey Murrin brought to life

Published on May 9, 2014

Many Newfoundlanders have heard of Mosey Murrin or Burns, the homeless man who was known as a local folk hero.

The tales of Mosey’s wit and way of living have made him part of local folklore.

A film, written, produced and directed by the College of the North Atlantic Film & Video Production program, will bring this story to life.

The crew has all been chosen, the script has been written, and all characters established. The next step is to fill the voids with actors wanting to be a part of the project.

Casting calls will be held 5-9 p.m. May 12 at Theatre Newfoundland Labrador in Corner Brook and May 13 at the DBS Fowlow building in the lecture theatre in Stephenville.

Organized and directed by Peter Buckle and Keith Bonnell, instructors with the program, the story follows Mosey on his journey through life and the conflicts a homeless person may have to face on a day-to-day basis, all while staying true to the Mosey Murrin character.
