The Hunter, by Eoin C Macken

One of the many reasons I fell in love with Eoin’s work.

Also Cinema Zero wrote something wicked:

“What makes The Hunter so effective is not just it’s inherently sad story, but also how it’s told. The movement of the frame, slow and controlled, the background chatter and applause from an unseen TV and that landscape – all of it serves to bring us into the world of a man who faces the hardest decision anybody could make. If the film’s beauty is at its edges, then this only serves to show you its heart is in the middle.”

Short Film ‘The Hunter’ was shot and directed by Eoin C Macken and Jonathan Figgis. Original score by Greg French of the band ‘The Brilliant Things’. A simple story about a man and his dog and the values of life and loyalty. – Eoin Macken

“Best friends actors Eoin Macken and Emmett Scanlan have teamed up to star in a new production together. The pair are currently filming a short movie, The Green Rabbit and The Ice Cream Girl, in the middle of the Nevada desert.

Trinity graduate Macken shot to stardom Stateside after he landed a role in hospital drama The Night Shift. He has just finished filming horror film The Forest alongside Tudors star Natalie Dormer.

Dublin actor Scanlan has finished a successful run in NBC drama A.D.: The Bible Continues. He is set to marry his actress girlfriend, former Hollyoaks co-star Claire Cooper, in New York on New Year’s Eve. His best friend Macken (32) will be by his side for the big day in December.

Raised in Dublin’s Clontarf, Scanlan is best known for his work in The Fall with Jamie Dornan. Yesterday he tweeted: ‘Deep in the blistering American desert, wearing nothing but boxer shorts and boots, accompanied by the wonderful wee actress Ryan Simpkins on set of #TheGreenRabbitAndTheIceCreamGirl. In any other industry I’d be locked up…’”

Eoin posted this link on his official website, Blank Canvas Pictures, but unfortunately for some reason his website got shut down, so here’s the link for you to watch. Both actors also played in his feature film, LEOPARD. None of the following parts have been posted anywhere. No idea if he managed to film them or not. Part i of a 7 part anthology of the Seven Deadly Sins. Part i looks at lust, featuring Michael Yare (Neverland, Ferocious Planet) and Charlotte Atkinson (Neverland). Shot and directed by Eoin C Macken, a Blank Canvas Pictures Production.

Eoin Macken appears in short ‘All The Little Things’

Showbiz Ireland: “Set in Miami in the not-to-distant-future, ‘All The Little Things’ is a ten minute short which will open the Irish Film Institute’s horror season this coming Halloween, and it’s sure to scare the bejaysus out of any of you sleazy nightclub crawlers out to hit on anything in a dress and a pair of stilettos. Hell, it scared the crappola outta us! For the plot of the movie turns-the-tables on men, when a coven of leggy stunners actually take the bait when hit with their cheesy chat-up-lines. Instead of taking them home for a sexual liaison, the guys become an after club snack for these cruel sirens.”

Showbiz Ireland: “Coming from the twisted mind of Director Jason Figgis, All the Little Things contrasts opulent locations and gorgeously turned out sophisti-cats against their primordial urge to dismember and consume their masculine counterparts. The deadly Black Widow Spider could take notes from these gals!”. “When we caught up with Sonya and the movie’s leading lady Maria Manton, they were calmly discussing whether bludgeoning with a hammer, removing nipples with pliers or the sound of a hacksaw blade eating through human bone would create the ultimate cinematic affect – their cling-wrapped victims Eoin Macken and Steve Gunn looked on uncomfortable.”
