More Malone...

Ed Malone, Cork performer noted for his astonishing one-man show The Self-Obsessed Tragedy of Ed Malone and star of my 2006 video Rendezvous, returned to his native city for a short break from his New York-set quest for superstardom. Over the years, I've shot quite a lot of hitherto unused footage of him. This winter we shot a lot more together, scenes and images vaguely linked by the idea (unshown!) of funeral rites for a dead bird. A finished film will emerge from this sometime in 2009.

Point of Departure is now at its grading/sound mixing stage. It should be ready for screening by the end of January.

My next project is an installation scheduled to be up in mid-February... More on that as work progresses.
