Swerve

A short film I wrote about a group of criminals competing for a mysterious bag has just hit the interwebs in all its bloody and profane glory. The film was shot in Kilkenny under the Mycrofilms banner and directed by Ross Costigan.

Check out Swerve here.

Daffney Molloy And Other Catastrophes

With Smitten gone off the RTÉ Player it seemed as good a time as any to put Daffney Molloy And Other Catastrophes online.

It’s a short comedy based on the same play with a lot of the same characters and actors (except me and Niall Morrissey who are the ‘Pippas’ of this short) and it’s set after Smitten so it kind of works as a follow up episode! And there probably won’t be a follow up episode so best enjoy this one! The film can be summed up as “Drowning their various sorrows at a housewarming party, four friends trade stories about a near mythical girl from their past.”

It premiered at last years IndieCork and also played this years Chicago Irish Film Festival. Enjoy!

The Mastermind

The Mastermind

Here’s a pic of the character I’m playing in the upcoming crime short Swerve, directed by Ross Costigan. The Mastermind is a smug, over dramatic strategist trying to pull the strings of all the players in the brutal game the movie centres around. It was a lot of fun to play and I got to drive a jeep. Happy out.

The film will premiere later this year. For more check out the Swerve page on Facebook.

Hot Water Bottle

My first short film Hot Water Bottle has just gone online.

Produced by Mycrofilms, it was shot in Kilkenny from summer 2010 into the spring of 2011 and premiered at the 2012 Cork Film Festival. After its festival runaround, I’m finally getting around to putting it online.

hotwaterbottleI was fairly into the idea of mumblecore movies (so cheap!) at the time and Richard Linklater makes movies where people just talk seem so easy, but yeah, it’s a fairly loose quartet of scenes centred around a break up that doesn’t go according to plan. The film stars Suzanne O’Brien, David Thompson, Simone Kelly and Peter McGann. Have a looksee.

The Flatpack Effect

Here’s a new sketch I did some acting in for LAD Productions.

It’s called The Flatpack Effect and chronicles one man’s breakdown at the hands of efficient Swedish furniture. I had to do very little acting for this as I don’t know the first thing about putting a table together. In all likelihood, if I had to, I’d probably lose my shit. It’s written by Dale Longmore and John Quinn and directed by Dale Longmore. Have a looksee!

The Worst Things About Working In An Office

Screen-shot-2014-01-09-at-20.50.48-634x351

A short sketch I did a bit of acting on for LAD Productions and written by Dale Longmore and John Quinn has just gone online. It’s spreading like wildfire around the web right now. Probably because there’s a lot of bad things about working in an office.

Zenith

Zenith One Sheet

Here’s the teaser one sheet poster for Zenith, a new short Irish sci-fi I recently wrapped shooting. I’ll be honest, I was pretty excited to get to play an astronaut. I had my own spacesuit and everything. The film is written and directed by the very talented Fergal Costello. This poster was designed by the equally talented D.O.P. Federico Rea. There’s a trailer coming soon I do believe.

Hot Water Bottle

This is the poster for a film I made called Hot Water Bottle.

It was designed by Paddy Dunne, one of the producers on the film. The other producer is Alan Slattery. The three of us also made the webcom Vultures.

It’s the first non Vultures creative project that Mycrofilms have undertaken. The second is Baby Love by Terrence White which is out later this year. Two more short films will go into production for 2012 and they’re probably going to be even better because that’s how these things roll.

We got the funding to shoot Hot Water Bottle in 2009. We started shooting it in 2010. We finished shooting it in 2011. There will be a trailer for it sometime very, very soon. The film itself is currently being sent out to a variety of festivals who may or may not want to show it to people.

I will write more about it in proportion to the amount of content I have to show off.

Attic

Attic is a film written by David Galster and directed by Peter O’Connor. These two guys have a bucket load of talent and potential between them and it was a real honour to be asked to be in their film. And the end result is just lovely. It’s the latest short film to be released by Young Irish Film Makers. Ross Costigan, David Thompson and myself play three bored wastrels who hang out in, well, an attic. Have a gander:
