Irish director Kealan O’Rourke (Before Sunrise, Rosebud) has been named as one of the Top 50 short filmmakers from around the world by art community site DeviantART.com.
Several of O’Rourke’s award-winning shorts will be featured in DeviantART’s new online film gallery.
“After seeing Kealan’s work we knew we wanted to feature him in the showcase for the first 50 artists on the site,” said DeviantART’s Film Gallery Director Kari Goedkoop. “Kealan’s work is innovative and has such artistic depth that it stamps an impression you cannot forget.”
O’Rourke, a graduate from Dun Laoighaire’s National Film School, is currently in production on the animated film ‘The Boy Who Lived In a Bubble’ and his feature film debut ‘The Raven And His Shadow’, which is scheduled to go into pre-production in 2008. He is also directing Edge Films productions of ‘Inside & Out’ Season 2 for TV3 and ‘The Fabulous Food Adventure’ for UTV.
