Seán Treacy is a 17-year-old filmmaker, actor and TV presenter from Ashford, County Wicklow. Since the age of seven, he has been making short films with friends and family. In 2017, he entered his first film festival at the age of 12. He came home with first prize, and this was the catalyst for Seán to dive deep into the world of filmmaking in the pursuit of achieving a full-time career as a writer/director in his adulthood.
In April of 2021, at the tail end of his time in his 5th year of secondary school, he found a new concept brewing. Four months later, he had his new project complete – a short film by the name of ‘The Least I Can Do’ – a film fundraised by believers in the power of young creativity and created almost entirely by teenagers of Ireland (including actors from Kilkenny, Kildare and Dublin), with the exception being young composer Alberto Hernández from Portugal.
This film tells the story of the innocent 17-year-old David who finds himself going to his first ever party – only to witness his best friend get far too comfortable with a female partygoer without permission or consent. Following this pivotal night, the film’s protagonist attempts to cope with this new perspective of who his friends truly are, while also trying to deal with the overwhelming guilt of his inaction at the party as he befriends the very girl who was assaulted, and who has since left David’s school. What comes of this tale is a new understanding of right and wrong, of good and evil, and of what it means to actually be there for others when they need it most.
