Liam O'Neill



Sean si è bloccato. È uno scrittore senza parole, un aspirante amante che non ha nessuno da amare, seduto nella sua casa vuota, rannicchiato davanti a uno schermo bianco, in attesa di un'ispirazione divina. L'ispirazione arriva finalmente in modo inaspettato. Si potrebbe dire che Kathleen è una "sorta" di storia d'amore...

Biofilmografia del regista

Liam is a writer and director of five short films. The first of those short films, The Barber Shop, featuring the beloved Irish actor David Kelly, was screened worldwide, winning several short film festival awards including the top prize, the Gold Mikeldi, at the Bilbao FF for Best Short Film. The Barber Shop was sold to TV stations in Ireland, Germany, the UK and the United States. Two of Liam’s short scripts – The Barber Shop and Northern Lights – were awarded RTE/Filmbase Short Film Awards and both also received Arts Council of Ireland script awards. In 2015 after a hiatus of nearly two decades working solely as a producer, Liam decided to combine producing with his first love; writing and directing. A short script, Lost & Found, was the initial result. Lost & Found was one of two scripts selected from among 130 scripts submitted to the 2015 Film Limerick initiative to receive significant production funding. Completion finance was raised through a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. Lost & Found is a family film and it is currently being developed by Paradox into a feature film. Since then Liam has written and directed two more short films that are on the festival circuit. Paradox has recently completed sales of these short films to RTE, SHORTSTV, and Aer Lingus inflight and to Air Alaska inflight. Liam, and his company Paradox Pictures, have also produced numerous award-winning theatrical films, documentaries, short films, and animations. Feature length productions include SEPARATION ANXIETY (1996), PETE’S METEOR (1998), HOW HARRY BECAME A TREE (2001) and FIVE DAY SHELTER (2010). These films have screened in festivals the world over including the main competitions in Venice, Berlin and Rome. They have also been screened commercially in cinemas and on TV screens for international audiences. HOW HARRY BECAME A TREE (aka Bitter Harvest) screened in the official competition of the 2001 Venice Film Festival and was a gala presentation in the Toronto Film Festival of the same year. The Irish Film Critics Circle selected HOW HARRY BECAME A TREE as one of the ten best Irish films of the decade 2000 – 2010. The film had a successful release, by Buena Vista, in Ireland and went on to be released theatrically in several international territories. FIVE DAY SHELTER – the debut film of writer/director Ger Leonard - screened in the main competition of the 2012 Rome Film Festival and was awarded the Best European First Feature Film Award at the Mons Film Festival of the same year. Liam has also produced documentaries including ESTELLA for RTE, IRISH ORANGES for RTE and ARTE in Germany, and GUNS AND CHIFFONS for RTE and the IFB. In 2013 Liam produced the feature length arts documentary SEE YOU AT THE PICTURES for RTE/BAI. This high profile documentary was the feature presentation of week long celebration of Irish film making on the Irish national TV station. Later that same year Liam co-produced UNDER THE HOOD a feature length doc about the dictatorship in Belarus (recently picked up by the German broadcaster MDR). Liam was a board member and chairman of Film Base for several years and for a decade was the Irish representative to EAVE, he has served twice on the Arts Council film bursary panel, was a founding board member of the Irish MEDIA Desk in Dublin and a founding member of d-net a pan European producer’s organization that exists to encourage European co-productions. Liam is a graduate of University College Dublin and The National Film School at IADT. He has taught film production extensively including long stints at The National College of Art and Design, in The National Film School of Ireland at IADT and also at the Dundalk Institute of Technology.
