“Remote” is an anthology of four short films about the tragicomedy of human relationships impounded by distance and Covid, and it’s available to watch on YouTube now!
Written and directed by Leticia Agudo, the films have been produced remotely and feature some of the most exciting acting talent in Ireland at the moment. You can watch the teaser here:
If You Love Them – starring Ally Ní Chiaráin and Muireann Bird
… set them free. Now? Are you mad? With things as they are?
About Dad – starring Malcolm Adams and Aisling McLaughlin
Sibling rivalry at a distance.
Second Chance – starring Esosa Ighodaro and Sarah-Jane Scott
This situation has really shown what’s important – and what is not.
Green is the Colour – starring Michael Patrick and Márcio Wille
It’s Ireland v Brazil, just not in the way that you imagine.
Paul gave us the idea for the set-up: actors would record themselves in their own laptops, while placing their phones in front of their laptop screens, so they could react to each other and Leticia could watch and direct on the same video call. It was faffy at times, setting and finding the right lighting and blocking. It looks very straight forward, but there’s a lot behind the scenes and a lot the actors had to do.
