Created by: Jann Clavadetscher, Émmsen Jafari, Michael Higgins, Jason Marsh, Dean Kavanagh, Vicky Langan & Maximilian Le Cain, Atoosa Pour Hosseini & Rouzbeh Rashidi / 2017 / 30 mins / Ireland
Pieced together like a cinematic Frankenstein’s monsters, Carcass Programme: Homo Ferox / Corpus Rex is an experimental short film that has been created from shots and sequences reworked from films from the archive of the Experimental Film Society, one of the most dynamic and distinctive forces in contemporary alternative cinema. “The Film is dead, long live the Film!”
It is an honour to be in such great company. What a lineup! Special Thanks to Rouzbeh Rashidi.

Drifting Cities World Premiere

Drifting Cities is complete.

Featuring Justyna Janiszewska and Ayami Andrews Drifting Cities is a new feature film that began it's journey in late 2012. Key scenes were shot on anamorphic 16mm both in Dublin City and London at that time. 
Late 2013 further shooting commenced in North Dublin in the housing estate of Darndale.
In the summer of 2014 I spent time at dflux Reserach Residency based in Hamtramck, Michigan. Further shooting around Detroit City took place. 
Since then I have been collecting found footage including 8mm motion film, photographic prints and 35mm slides some of which were used in the final picture. 
Editing commenced in Riga, Latvia in the summer of 2016 and proved to be a lengthly process. 
I'm very happy to announce it will make it's World Premiere back in Riga at Process - the first Experimental Film Festival of its kind in the Baltics.


The DeVry Portable Projector housing complete

The projector's housing is complete using all the original wood and steel bits and pieces (even a red glass little window). There was a very thin leather 'coat' which was to destroyed and so it was dumped. I went with the raw wood, stained and varnished. The interior was originally finely thin card which I've substituted with some Irish linen.

Now for the electrics!
