Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. There are so many ways to create stories online: through videos, blog posts and social media. This is a selection of short films I have been involved in, either writing, producing or both.
I Love You Suzie
Why would a man dread delivering a bouquet of flowers? A poignant 2-minute short, written by Trish Groves and directed/produced by Fiona Ashe.
Fifty People One Question, Dublin
Inspired by the ’50 People 1 Question’ vox pop online series, this Dublin version was directed by award-winning human rights filmmaker Dearbhla Glynn. I helped produce this for an Irish overseas development agency, together with Annelien Groten and Orla Quinn.
Fifty People One Question, Jerusalem
Also directed by Dearbhla Glynn, this time in Israel, she posed a question to random people in a market place in Jerusalem: Israelis, Palestinians and tourists.
She Can’t Fight Poverty and Injustice Alone
In just 30 seconds, this short film raises the issues of land-grabbing, women farmers, agri-business, drought and crop failure. The young family goes from happy self-sufficiency to struggling to survive because of a series of events completely outside their control.
I wrote the script, and it was produced and directed by Cliff Parrot of Magpie6Media.
The Amazing Adventures of Captain Rex O’Reilly
Co-created and produced by Trish Groves, this pilot trailer was created for RTE’s Storyland as an homage to the vintage black and white heroes of old. The 30-second version came second in the 2009 Zozzy TV competition. Both were written, directed and edited by Noel Brady, who also co-created the series.
Rex On The Streets
Intrepid reporter Melinda Dash tries to interview Captain Rex O’Reilly on the streets of Dublin. The interviewer meets three actors, who may – or may not- be the real characters from the series.
Frankenstein (in 60 Seconds)
Made for the Jameson Empire 2010 done in 60 seconds competition, this is an homage to the James Whale film from the 1930s. Frankenstein was written, produced, directed and edited by Noel Brady.
