Last night.

Times Square, New York City.

I’m an Irish expat who grew up in Dublin and have lived in New York for the past five years. Being away from home, I really wanted to find a way to help with the YES campaign in Ireland.
Tonight the perfect opportunity arose while I was working with George Takei on a film shoot in Time Square. He and his husband Brad mentioned that they have been following the gay marriage referendum in Ireland closely and were looking for a way to show their support. Fortunately, I happened to have two Yes Equality signs with me…

Vancouver based Irish animator Eoin Duffy (he of the wonderful On Departure and The Unconscious Homeless Man) writes:

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.
