Irish shorts at Atom Films

Irish shorts at Atom Films
As Eoghan points out in his comment, there are currently 35 Irish shorts available to view at Atom Films.
I have not watched them all yet but there are some gems among them including Yu Ming is Anim Dom, Oddball Football, Guy's Dog and Prey Alone.

Perfect for timing for winding down on a Friday at work.

Thanks for that Alan (and Eoghan!) - it was a good one for me to post into the forums in Young Irish Film Makers ( I am involved in.

The production quality of Prey Alone is unlike anything I've ever seen in a short and better than most features I've ever watched! How they could produce this within the budget of a short film blows my mind. The film is truly amazing. My only (petty) objection is that it is based in the US. Why? There are literally hundreds of movies of this genre set in American cities; it would have been refreshing to see it set in Dublin. And I presume (it being produced in Ireland) that would have been an option.

Fantastic Films, the team behind it, were responsible for the recent Oscar-winning short Six Shooter, amongst a handful of other shorts.

Did i hear correctly that the team got a full length, big budget film on the back of Prey Alone?

I haven't heard this. I heard someone from the team (I think it was Martin McDonagh, writer and director of Six Shooter) interviewed on NewsTalk 106 recently and don't remember any mention of a full-length feature. I could be wrong though. They certainly seem more than capable.

I could have dreamt it. Wouldn't be the first time.
