This animation follows a little robotic character who’s just trying to grab some shut-eye but the factory around him springs to life unexpectedly. A serious design flaw in the factories ergonomics prevents the poor guy from reaching the off switch and the rest is history!
This is a music video created for the final year project. Everything from start to finish was created by Cormac, including the music.
What makes this short film so special is the fact that it was filmed, vfx’ed and comped all in just 4 days. It was made as part of the “4 day Film” catagory in the Darklight Film Festival.
A man, a room and some mind warping drugs that send him hurtling through time brandishing a kettle and a dangerously brittle mug full of boiling liquid. That’s what this ad may appear to be about on first viewing however, some may say unfortunately, no such luck. This one sees the ESB (now ESB Electric Ireland ) celebrate their many years of serving electrons to our power hungry country and a little brand change thrown in for good luck.
This ad is about a load of 2FM radio presenters dressing up in their finest role playing gear and deluding themselves into thinking they’re having fun in what must be a freezing warehouse…it was December after all. A little known fact about this ad is that it was filmed during the Cold War and a nuclear explosion was reported to have gone off within a mile of the bunker they were filming. This is said to be the sole cause for both the apparent lack of aging of the cast since the incident and Mr. Tubridy’s unfortunate limb length in relation to his slight frame.
The following ad is about a pyromaniac woman who trip balls after setting fire to a bag which in turn envelops her cold and heartless cave and turns it into a cosy and warm living room with a free husband to boot. You’ll notice in the ad we never see his feet. That’s because he doesn’t have any, he’s merely an abomination of her twisted imagination.
A little girl with powers beyond our comprehension body-slams a house into submission while the cruel elements taunt it. Nasty leaves, tracer rounds of water and footballs adorned with suspiciously brown matter pelt it relentlessly.
This is basically a few of the Intersitials (those little one second reminders that pop on between ads to remind you which station you’re watching) Cormac did for the rebrand of RTE Two.
This is an ad Cormac worked on just before Christmas ’09 for Rice Krispies Squares.
