I studied in the National Film School, Dun Laoghaire and in 2007, I made a short film called ‘Lucky.’ I always liked the film but never completed a satisfactory final cut – (other college projects got in the way and I had moved onto several more ideas.) Anyway, I came across it on a hard drive over the weekend. I sat up till the early hours two nights running to work on ‘Lucky’, tightening the cut up, replacing the audio with better sound FX and music and adding a few touches that I learned over the intervening years.
It tells the story of a young boy struggling with his English homework. (It’s more fun that it sounds!)
Anyway, here’s Lucky for your viewing pleasure. Six years in the making.
