A trailer for Ponydance: The Movie by Doris/Magee Productions [AKA Derek O’Connor and Ian Whelan], and produced by Willie White on TG4 this MONDAY January 13 at 8pm.

Commissioned under the Arts Council/TG4 Splanc! whatsit, Ponydance is a ‘part-mockumentary part fly-on-the- wall’ exploration of the world of Ponydance, a Belfast-based dance troupe formed in 2005 by Galway-born choreographer, dancer and Irish speaker Leonie McDonagh.

Want those gold pants very badly.


No wait, come back.

It’s all changed.

A short film about the launch of the Electric Ireland Feis Ceoil 2013 at the Natural History Museum, Dublin, starring the Rockford Manor [girls’ school, Co Dublin] Choir, classical guitarist Liam McManus and violinist Juliana Odubajo.

Fair play though, in fairness.

Doris Magee Productions got Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, Eastbound and Down and in town to promote Your Highness) into a room in Dublin yesterday.

Their mission?

To have one Hollywood stoner-comedy-god guess the meaning of words like ‘geebag’, ‘minger’, ‘banjoed’ and ‘Tubridy’.

Tough ask.

A Doris/Magee Production for Broadsheet.ie, created by Ian Whelan, Declan Lynch and Derek O’Connor, and starring Mister Danny Motherfucking McBride.

The Irish Times youth wing want YOU to create the copy for a fantasy horror movie poster about the Irish recession.

Madam was all like ‘what’s a horror movie’ but they got it passed.

And it does bring the LOLz.

But what about movies where the actual title reflect our times and mood. Above is the Broadsheet choice. More of a movie within a movie but you get the drift.

Meanwhile, take eight minutes and watch Doris Magee and the best silent movie ever about our current economic plight.
