Bio

 

Eoghan studied in IADT, and is one of the founding members of the Irish animation collective, Delicious 9. During the four years working with this group he collaborated over 50 different projects, ranging from video installations, design, live audion visual performances, visual sets, curation, children’s workshops and 25 experimental music videos (several of which still end up on late night MTV slots, 16 of which were commercially released by Domino Records and Leaf Records).

 

In 2005, Eoghan wrote and directed his first short film Stars, which picked up Best Animated Film at the 2005 Galway Film Fleadh, and a further 7 awards on the festival circuit. After further work on commercials for Coca-Cola, Hard Working Class Heroes Festival The Den/The Ark co-production Save That Robot, Eoghan left the Delicious 9 collective in 2006.

 

Eoghan is currently developing an animated feature film as writer/director (Irish Film Board & Still Films)- an adaptation of the 1960 science fiction novel ‘Rogue Moon’ by Algis Budrys. He is a member of the Darklight Film Festival Committee and has recently created short live action pieces, holding animation workshops in Palestine and touring his live animation visual performance with musician Neil O’Connor and his band Somadrone.

His Streamlounge installation has been showcased at the Darklight Festival, Reading Festival, Leeds Frstival and at the ICA as part of the London Short Film Festival.
