For the last two years, Raoul Martinez (aided and abetted by Joshua van Praag) has been developing a major project on the subject of freedom, power and control, called "Creating Freedom". He has just completed the first of a series of documentaries, in which he interviews a wide range of serious thinkers (including Chomsky, the late Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva, Amy Goodman, and Ha-Joon Chang) on these topics. The project also includes some amazing portraits by Raoul of his interviewees. If you are interested in freedom; the freedom of thought, speech, movement...etc... please keep an eye out for this wonderful film, "Creating Freedom".
A friend of mine, Conor McMahon, is an up and coming filmmaker. He has had great success with his feature film, "Deadmeat" and his very popular RTE t.v. series "Zombie Bashers". He is currently in post-production for a new feature film readying itself for release on our cinemas soon called, "Stitches". Here is a hilarious short film he made about how he was mugged in Dublin City one afternoon, called, "Midday Mugging".
My mates are in an up and coming rocking band called, "The Cast of Cheers". Conor Adams, the front man, is an old mate of mine from years back. Delighted for the band now as they are doing really well. Keep an ear and an eye out for The Cast of Cheers cos they're going onto huge things. Here's their first video for the single, "Family".
