A short film by Diarmuid Hayes, who writes
Creativity Requires Courage is a semi-autobiographical film about an aspiring screenwriter on the hunt for inspiration. It makes use of a variety of editing and filming techniques to create a dream-like world.
I made it with my girlfriend and some friends while I was living in New York for a competition in Dublin. The rules of the competition stated the film had to be made in a month, and include a specific prop, character and line of dialogue (candle, ‘Andy Connolly’ and “Say that again”)….It’s also on tonight at the Lighthouse Cinema [Market Square, Smithfield, Dublin 7] at their Shorts night (screenings start at 8.30).
