Two new short films from Cork based directors to get their première in The Pavilion, Carey’s Lane, Cork on the 23rd of May, 9pm.
Cork based directors Dan O’Connell and Seán Breathnach from Egomotion, will première their latest short movies in The Pav on the 23rd of May. This is a free event which will be followed by a short Q & A with both directors aimed at anyone who is interested in learning more about the films, or about film making in Cork.
First up is ‘Searching For Ten’, written and directed by Seán Breathnach and beautifully shot by cinematographer Páraic English. It features performances from a host of talent including James Browne (Tree Keeper), Irma Mali (Breakeven – The Script), Pascal Scott (Grabbers, Intermission) and Ruth Hayes (Th3 Room). Shot on location in Cork and Waterford, the short film follows the journey of a chick lit author who is desperately searching for a 10 out of 10 book review, a goal that both drives him and frustrates him. He wants the perfect book review, and he will do anything to get it.
Entirely self funded, ‘Twinkle Toes’ is the latest offering from director Dan O’Connell, produced by Frank Hurley with cinematography by Jason Keane. The film features the acting talents of Mary-Louise McCarthy (Penny, Tunnel), Frank Hurley (Baby Boots, I Remember) and introduces Clara Harte and James Murray. Shot entirely on location in Cork, ‘Twinkle Toes’ is the gruesome story of an enduring friendship even in times of extreme darkness. When two childhood friends find themselves injured and hunted they must stick together at all costs.
Dan O’Connell is writer/director and the co-founder of Egomotion, a Cork based film-making community and production company. His films range from documentary (Rock with your Cork Out, Letting Mr. Blue Sky In! – Flashmob) to drama (I Remember, Voices) but more recently he has focused on the horror genre. His previous film ‘Baby Boots’ featured in Cork Film Festival, Cannes – Court Metráge and Schull Fastnet Film Festival. Dan likes to surround himself with talent and learns more and more on each project big or small.

Now i just gotta find the time…
Just letting ye all know there is a screening this Thursday (8th April 2010) night at 8pm, get there earlier as seats are limited. The nights feature is The Shout:
Idyllic Devon locations. Hot, liquid afternoons; a game of cricket watched by ‘mad’ trees, the air punctuated by the cries of peacocks and a terrifying story of a man from the outback, who exercised the right to kill his children and who can kill anyone with the Terror Shout. A man (Alan Bates) who infiltrates the lives of a couple who live in a remote cottage by a rocky coast. A man who takes the wife (Susannah York) as his own property leaving the husband (John Hurt) utterly powerless, until he finds the man’s soul trapped in a pebble. The shout itself …truly disturbing. The ending brings both the story and the the cricket game together in spectacular fashion. At the close of play, you realize you’ve witnessed a straight horror story that is grounded in mundane reality.
Should be a good one.
