'Furniture - Murder and Love' - funniest film I saw...

Whilst Laura describes the film as 'FILTH', Melissa says 'Doorty' and Joachim Pietsch says 'brilliant', Padraig Fagan's comment is still my favourite... 'the funniest film I saw at the film fleadh over the weekend'. Praise indeed! Thanks to all! Keep watching!

2013 Galway Film Fleadh

Screened my latest disgraceful 'cutbacks' short film 'Furniture - Murder and Love' at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh. Film went down very well, with everyone laughing at the right places etc... After the screening, Brown Bag's Cathal Gaffney told me that 'a special place resides in hell for DQ'! Indie Cork's Mick Hannigan told me that I was 'a very very bad man' and Stephen Duignan confirmed that I was 'a dirty old man'! So, everyone happy! There's no point in making a provocative comedy if no-one responds!

Delighted also that Rory Kerr (2013 IADT Animation graduate) won the Best First Animation category at the Fleadh. Alan O' Cuileann (2003 IADT Animation graduate) also won the Don Quijote Award for his Frameworks animation 'CODA'.

The 2013 IADT Galway gang... Claire, Rory, Natalie, Peavoy, Matt, DQ, Tom and Amelia

Congrats also to IADT animation grads Claire Lennon, Thomas Young, Natalie ni Chlerigh, Matthew Porter, as well as recent grads Eamonn O' Neill and John Peavoy who all showed animations at the Fleadh.

Galway winner Rory Kerr and DQ

Well done to winners and participants all! The Best Fleadh yet! I look forward to next year's Fleadh with renewed determination!

Lucinda Lucinda

Enda worries about what his darling Lucinda might do in the abortion vote... Which way will she go? Could we care less? Shot in a Gas Mark 7 studio in the middle of a heatwave...

Bankers Snowden and Egypt

'cutbacks' returns after weeks of silence... It took some courage to face an animation studio on the hottest day since volcanoes dominated the Irish landscape... Survived the shoot. Rehydration, rehydration, rehydration...
