Talent? Depends on what your wearing.

Last night on The All Ireland Talent Show, Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh wss in Kilkenny to look for the greatest entertainers that the east has to offer. "I'M concerned about your age" she said to a seven year old, who had clearly been allowed enter so....? Later she wondered alloud if a mother of 3 would be able to handle the commitment of taking part in the show, eh Blathnaid, lots of people have kids, you included, and then go to RTE and watch the 25th January show from 38.55, she asks the guys with the football freestyle skills if they would be willing to do it with their shirts off? They said no. Blathnaid! Taking off your clothes is hardly a talent!!

The Story didn't land....

We didn't get selected for Storyland, Bummer. We got a lot out of the pitch process, and we're happy with what we submitted, I guess this time it was not to be....

A bleeding nostril, Perfect.

There are a whole bunch of these ads about Pablo The Drug Mule Dog, online and on TV at the moment as part of an anti drugs campaign in Britain. They're really cool but I don't know how much of an affect they are having.
Check out the Frank website, and the basement where poor Pablo gets slit open.

Our pitch for RTE Storyland

Myself and LiveDrive producer extraordinaire John McEvoy submitted an idea to RTE for their Storyland project. The basic premise is that they will select 10 videos, put them on the RTE website and get viewers to vote for them. If your project gets selected, you get to make another episode, and so on until you get voted out or win.... They shortlisted 20 submissions and we were among the people who got to pitch. We were in with them today so fingers crossed...

Our show is called iCabalot, it's about a young philosophy graduate who unexpectedly inherits his dads taxi and discovers he has The Gift of the Cab.

This is the teaser trailer we made for our pitch.

RTE aren't all talk (Shock Horror)

As posted by Una, 2fm management have decided daytime DJs Rick O'Shea and Nikki Hayes must drop all non-music items from their shows and simply introduce the music.

Interesting TV on the way

Stephen Spielberg had an idea for a TV show and got screenwriter Diablo Cody, of Juno fame, to write it. The United States Of Tara premieres soon on Showtime and looks pretty cool. Toni Collette starring can't hurt.
