For Dan, ALEX is more than a virtual assistant; he’s his soulmate. Love, jealousy and control all play a part in this dark comedy that was written, produced and edited in 48 Hours as part of the Little Cinema & Galway City of Film 48 Hour Film Challenge.
Xo Mo‘s first music video for their debut track ‘Sweat’. The electronic duo worked with us closely in every stage of the process and were incredibly good about being chucked into a rainy forest for a day and a night.
This would not have been possible without Jane Quigley and her amazingly generous, supportive family.

We approached the London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign with a concept for a campaign video encouraging people to come home to vote in the upcoming referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment. We had incredible filmmakers stationed across the globe (Ireland, UK, Canada, USA, France) and we all wanted to use our skills to participate in the cause.
A true team effort from some incredibly talented people, with a haunting rendition of the titular song recorded especially for this piece by the musician Emma O’Reilly, Bread & Roses is a piece that is very dear to our hearts.
As the deadline for the Referendum fast approached and based on the success of our previous effort, the Together For Yes campaigned commissioned us to create a video encouraging people to get out and vote on the day. We decided to go for a lighter tone figuring that by this stage in the, at this point, years-long debate, people would be worn down or dispirited by something too overly serious.
The timescales were so tight that Emily had to begin editing on a flight to the US; it was completed and submitted from a hotel room in Las Vegas.
Glimmermen was a web-based transmedia narrative which invited users into the world of An Roinn Anaithnid – the Department of the Unknown. The website Glimmer.men acted as an exposé and hub of information about the supernatural beasts and cryptids of Irish folklore which are revealed to actually exist, having been covered up by “Glimmermen” since their inception 1937. Users were presented with four documentary-style videos about Irish monsters, complete with cinematic flashback sequences, special effects and the ever-present Narrator character, who has purportedly created Glimmer.men to warn the public about this grand conspiracy. The site also hosted a discussion forum and “hacked” government archive, where much additional information (which adds context and depth to the primary videos) could be found. Parts of the site, including a video finale, were inaccessible without passwords which require close examination of all materials to find. In this way, Glimmermen sought to further the development of transmedia storytelling by attempting to create a self-contained narrative world across multiple formats, accessible from a single location. Glimmermen is also an experiment in the exploitation of Irish folklore for the purposes of pure entertainment and cinematic horror. Great care was taken to imbue the videos and additional materials with elements that thrill, surprise and scare.
