When a high powered career woman is asked on a romantic date by her boyfriend, she decides to end their relationship there and then. Not content to let her man down gently, she goes in all guns blazing, prepared even to vent her spleen, but is she really prepared for the outcome? Lucky Escape is a four-minute short, which was written, produced, and directed by Shane McCabe, and shot in one day on location in Rathfarnham Village, Dublin. Although shot in Dublin with an all-Irish cast and crew, the movie sets out to explore a universal theme. Featuring Vanessa Keogh (Veronica Guerin, The Clinic, Fair City, The Tudors) and José Mantero (Bitterness, Fair City, Hooligans, 3 Crosses, WC), the movie sets out to examine the age old saying that we should always look before we leap. It aims to tell a simple tale, using a three act structure, making the audience believe one thing at the start of the film, but see the complete opposite by the end. The film had its world premiere at the prestigious 11th Annual Rhode Island International Film Festival 2007, and went on to screen at The New York City Audience Choice Downtown Film Festival 2007, The First Annual NiCHE Film and Music Festival 2007, the 11th Annual LA Shorts Fest 2007, The Vine Shorts Fest in Santa Monica, Los Angeles 2007, Merging Arts Short-Short Film Festival 2007, Show Off Your Shorts Film Festival, Los Angeles 2008, Palm Springs International Short Film Festival 2008, Cleveland International Film Festival 2009, Dingle
