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'.

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.

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