#giffgaffguts

So, one of the Quirksville captains Justina (aka Just) took part in what was an extremely messy job last week, what could only be described as a bloodbath – (not real blood, but very close to looking like it) she had loads of fun and got stuck in! Having a guts throwing fight in an abandoned swimming pool is now our new achieved merit badge.

See if you can spot her in this teaser, stay tuned, we’ll be posting more very soon.

Have you got the guts?

I’m Fine Thanks

Director / animator Eamonn O’Neill presents something dark and enigmatic, evoking the phrase “Hi, How Are You”? I’M FINE THANKS” in an illustrious form, it’s an interesting, thought-provoking watch that might prove slightly unnerving but it’s a trait that fits beautifully into the film’s musings on the fragility of life.
