Private Project

Drone Bone Jetty

Puck Tyrrell is waiting for a boat. He hasn’t gone to work today. He has probably lost his job anyway. Puck’s had a run of good luck lately; first the allotment, then the free ticket to Heebie Jeebies and the new job; the newest recruit at the Academy of Holodramatic Arts, where algorithms do all the heavy thinking; those algorithms just can’t get enough in the Unity quest to create “art without artists''; studying the freaks, creating the data.

An exciting new filmic/stage collaboration between Laura Sheeran and Little John Nee; “Drone Bone Jetty”, like their last collaboration “Radio Rosario” is set in a not too distant dystopian future in the west of Ireland.
