We’re delighted to report that RTÉ/Filmbase funded short, Love is a Sting, will premiere at this years Galway Film Fleadh .

The film follows struggling children’s book writer Harold Finch, who gains an ‘unexpected house guest in the form of Anabel: a 20 year old hyper-intelligent mosquito. Anabel has literally been the fly on the wall throughout history, but has never managed to communicate with a human. She will attempt to do so now, even if it kills her.’

Starring Seán T. Ó Meallaigh, Love is a Sting was Directed by Vincent Gallagher for Fail Safe Films. The short underwent full picture and Sound post here at Screen Scene where it was edited by Martha Meyler (see full list of Screen Scene credits below).
