Midnight Man Spotlighted on Film Ireland

Film Ireland Spotlight: Midnight Man

Film Ireland‘s Paul O’Sullivan has a chat with Midnight Man director Rob Kennedy about the movie and his inspiration.

“Why do you like to be scared?” In the opening scene of Rob Kennedy’s Midnight Man, Alex explains to her friend Lauren the pleasures of a good scare: “Your heart races; your hair stands on end; your palms get sweaty. Like a rollercoaster. Or a bungee jump: the chord is there to protect you while you taste the fear, and when you bounce back to safety you get this tingly rush of relief.” Alex is obviously talking about the pleasure of a good scary movie, and I find the metaphor apt, because ten minutes in and my legs are tied, the rope is fastened, and I feel confident that my guide is in control.

Wheels of Death Screens

Our short film Wheels of Death was exhibited at the New York City Horror Film Festival on Friday the 20th of November at Tribeca Cinemas in Manhattan. The show sold out and we had a full house. The other shorts in our program included X-Mess Detritus, Death in Charge, Hunger, Sinkhole, Attackazoids, Deploy!! and afterwards the feature film Sweatshop screened.  Our film got plenty of laughs and we met some great people at the festival. We particularly enjoyed X-Mess Detritus, Death in Charge, and Sinkhole, which won the award for best short film. We also enjoyed Gigi Romero’s short film Together. We would like to thank festival director Michael Hein for being supportive of our film and giving us a great reception in the big apple!
