A Curse On The Zombie Establishment.
Mediabite have carried an interview with independent Irish Film maker Eamonn Crudden, many of you might be familiar with some his his output on social movements, including Route Irish and the terrifying Berlusconi’s Mousetrap about the G8 in Genoa. His style can be a little weird, disjointed pieces of audio and leaps and bounds in symbolism and sampledelia.
There’s something really dark and ugly about the way the radio pieces and tunes mix in, it’s like the usual banter of radio shows like Pat Kenny etc are dissected against the visuals on screen. Little needs to be said about how useless most of the commentary on the recession appears, just pundits mouthing off on a daily basis with no real grasp of the roots of the crisis and paddling dinghies to stay afloat. Those soundbites, or dinghies are harpooned against the cinematography of Crudden’s series.
The soundtrack for the first in the Trilogy was provided by Dublin DJ PCP, and as a blend of dark dubstep and dread shaking electronica it suits the mood perfectly and matches the production process too. As an exercise in DIY film making, the results are brilliant, as a commentary on the recession, bang on – it’s about time the trilogy got some recognition outside the usual circle jerk on leftie sites or facebook peer groups. More of this stuff please.
