The frenetic trailer for a new play, Leper and Chip, written by Lee Coffey, directed by Karl Shiels. To wit:
The boy, Leper meets the girl, Chip. Boy meets girl… in the middle of a battering, boy wrecks bus full of pensioners, girl gets chased by machete wielding maniac and love without madness isn’t love at all…Fast, frantic, funny… Dublin at 100mph with leopard coated cougars, Pringle eating whales and your almost-midget mate chained inside a fridge.
Rob O’Donoghue writes:
‘Leper and Chip’ will be running in Theatre Upstairs, above Lanigan’s Pub on Eden Quay, Dublin from the 22nd of April until the 3rd of May.
Los Angeles 1992 – The Warriors and every other gang in the city are called to meet in the Valley.

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.
