ANIMATIONS

Division

My biggest art project ever, Division is an anime inspired animated short film that I wrote, directed, edited, produced, and animated etc. 5 very talented actors from Drama courses, DUplayers society, and TCD Japanese society did the voices and live action scene, and the Irish band Noise machine did the two musical soundtracks. This has had a pretty big screening and was made into a DVD which I have sold at Eirtakon (an irish anime convention) and to others who are interested.

The story synopsis is as follows: Atsushi Crowley has left Atama City (in the east) and relocated to the western city Munbim. Running from his past, he for gets his past life, changes his name, and starts a band. When he meets a girl from his past his memories begin to come back and his new identity is threated. In the end he gets shot and dies, as part of the subplot, however the metaphorical meaning is that when you lose the identity you create for yourself you lose everything.

Contact me at the.opaque@gmail.com if your interested in buying a copy, they are 5 euro each (not including postage) and include a full colour case. The DVD also contains the following extras: Behind the scenes, commentary, alternate musical soundtrack, subtitles, 30 minute video tutorial on how to make a short animated film.

MUSIC VIDEOS

Fanny Pack: crazy bunny
Click to see This involved getting kicked out of the ilac shopping centre in under one minute... then we went out onto the street (henry street to be precise).We did our show there... out on henry street, a kind of social experiment to see how people would react to the clothes, the filming, and the various words we had written on signs that we would flash at random people. It was quite odd, and we got alot of people laughing, talking about their penis size, some looking in disgust, others shock and others bitter envy...
