Simon O’Neill’s short Tell me About Yourself airs on RTÉ Two’s Shortscreen on Easter Monday, 21st April at 23:55.
In this micro-budget short, actor Steve Hayes (Guy Fearon) attempts to record an audition clip. His brief from the director is that ambiguously annoying request “Tell me about yourself…”
Written by co-star Samia Rida and shot on an iPhone 4S, the film won the Best International Film & Best Actor prizes at the Olleh Smartphone Film Festival in Seoul, South Korea and won a prize in the “Hrabal PUBlished” Short Film competition in Budapest last weekend.
Screened at the Bang! Short Film Festival in Nottingham last December, it was described by Left Lion Magazine as “Funny, full of swearing, and a great example of what can be done with minimal filmmaking.”
