MachinimaPrime’s shot-for-shot live action remake of the most poignant and ingenious video game trailer ever made.
Caution: gory as all hell.
Mike McGrath-Bryan from Cork-based animation studio Gobstar Film writes:
We have a short film coming up in the Cork Film Festival, on November 13th, called ‘The Scumbagnetic Effect’. A 3D animated short about bad behaviour, The Scumbagnetic Effect satirises both ASBO culture and self-styled bad-boy bankers in equal measure, and was completed in four months on a budget of zero euro.
The trailer for Stalker, directed by Mark O’Connor (he of Manifesto, whose controversial ‘call to arms’ we posted about last year) – an ultra low budget feature that was the runner-up Best New Irish Film at the 2012 Galway Film Fleadh.
The trailer for ‘struggling student filmmaker’ Dara McConnell’s heroin shocker Diane. Dara writes:
I’m looking for a way to get my new film some attention. Unashamedly self promoting this like a mad thing but not really getting the attention I think it deserves.

If you can’t wait until November to see it, might we recommend this very excellent radio documentary by Phil Jupitus on the same subject
Myself, a small team and the legend that is George Takei teamed up to create animated-short The Missing Scarf. The film received its world premiere last Saturday (13th July) at the Galway Film Fleadh nabbing up the James Horgan Award for Best Animation – rendering the film oscar eligible. In addition the film has also been invited to screen at LA Shorts Fest’s opening night!
G’wan the Eoin!
The film is starting its festival run now.
