A Swede in The Hand.

A short, IKEA-based comedy from a new Irish web series, Logan & Regan, starring Peter Melrose and Seán McGillicuddy.

They say:

Logan & Regan is a satirical look at society through the eyes of two twenty-somethings who are living together and trying to keep up with modern culture and trends, often failing spectacularly.

Logan & Regan

The Mustering of The Harrier.

It’s pretty epic.

Hugh Cooney writes:

Me and my Pal Charlie Doran were bloody sick to the back teeth with all of the lacklustre fantasy epics cruising the streets.

So we’ve decided with no prior experience to just get stuck in and make one ourselves. Let us know what you think.

You can come hob knob with us at a red carpet premiere on the 23rd of November in Dublin. Tickets here

My Name Is Brian.

An inspiring mini-documentary (2 mins 44 secs).

Dara O’Neill, of Dream Boat Productions,  writes:

My Name is Brian is a story that gives a moment to the expression of a dancer with Down Syndrome who is embarking on a mission to choreograph a show for the first time.

An empowering and inspiring window into the world of a gentle voice that also talks through his body. His beautiful and thoughtful movement resists the idea of disability and limitations.
