Revelations was short-listed for an animation award at Fastnet Film Festival. Revelations, created in 2007 by rotoscoping over live actors. The film has screened at various film festivals around the world including Telluride in Denver, Colorado.


Bare has been invited to show at the “Irish Talent on Screen” screening on Tuesday, 21st February in the Irish Film Institute as part of the Jameson’s Dublin International Film Festival. www.dubliniff.com

Sample won 2nd prize at the Karnival, Kommando Film-making Screening on 22 January in the Kino Cinema, Cork. Its screening at the event was accompanied by huge laughter and loud applause from all members of the audience.

Paper Plane Creations collaborated with writer, Adrian Scanlan and director, Olan Wrynn to make a live-action film in just 24 hours for the Karnival magazine, Kommando Film-Making Competition. The title that we were given was Sample from which we devised a sharp, snappy comic piece. Under the tight time frame it was difficult to find actors. Fiona McGarry from Graffiti Youth Theatre kindly stepped in to play Marianne, the girl who gives the urine sample. Other acting parts were performed by our crew – namely directors Jane Lee and Olan Wrynn and editor, Stephen O’Connell.

Bare is published onto the Irish Film Board DVD – “Irish Talent on Film” which contains a selection of some of the best Irish short films and animations from the last few years
