Fastnet - 'cutbacks' window

'cutbacks' is David Quin's satirical internet series. Started in 2009, the series has shamelessly lampooned Irish political and public figures and hit big viewing figures during the recent Irish Presidential campaign. Several short films have emerged from the ‘cutbacks’ series. ‘Mister Heaney, a wee portrait’ won Best Animation at the 2010 Galway Film Fleadh and ‘leitronium’ won the Irish Consulate Award at the 2012 Chicago Irish Film Festival. Both trophies are displayed in this window, along with a cardboard factory set and a Seamus Heaney mask from ‘leitronium’.
