Odeon Cinema, Victoria Square, Belfast

Scattered Images are hosting a showcase event of Independently made short films, a TV pilot and two animations from Northern Ireland.
The film event will take place at the Odeon Cinema in Belfast’s Victoria Square on Saturday 31st March from 10am to 1pm.

All press, bloggers and film critics who attend the Premieres will also be invited to the after show party that is being held at CitiGolf, Cromac St, Belfast, BT2 8LA, from 1pm to 7pm.

The C Project
The C Project was set up last year by Director Marty Stalker of Scattered Images as a collaboration programme for Northern Ireland filmmakers and writers at any level.
Since moving over here five years ago, Marty was surprised by the large amount of Independent film makers present in Northern Ireland and the general lack of communication with regards to collaborating on projects.
Personally, Marty has always believed that having more than one creative mind on a project produces greater, richer results.
So it was simple, he was going to collaborate with a handful of writers/ filmmakers each year and help make the short films on the company’s equipment.
His aim was also to attract the attention of skilled and talented crew members in other departments of filmmaking who would join the team along the way. Four short films were made in the first year of The C Project and they will be premiering at the event on Saturday along with an additional short film, a TV Pilot called ‘Coast’ and two animations created by students from the University of Ulster.

TV Pilot ‘Coast’ which will be making its long-awaited Premiere on Saturday was created as a 6 part television series, written and directed by Alan Stewart and Christopher McClenaghan. Packed with moments we know the audience will never expect, ‘Coast’ promises to be a 6-part-thrill-ride for its fans.
One way in, No way out. Coast will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you come back for more.
Synopsis: A group of office workers decide to get out of Belfast city and head for the north coast of Ireland. Upon spending the day at a deserted beach they return to find their car stolen. Alone and without communication, they are faced with a long walk back across the coast or a longer walk back through the deserted country roads to the nearest town. Things only get worse for the group when they discover they are being stalked.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
