Kirin J Callinan

Kirin J Callinan is a solo musician from Sydney, Australia and is one of the best hidden gems amongst the rubble of dirt you have yet to discover. His music is dark and mechanical like the intricate gears and cogs of a clock. His guitar surrounds the listener while his voice is deep, brave and ominously interesting with enough force to crumble down the walls of Jericho. His live shows are intense, witty and somehow delicate, and if ever given the chance to see him perform make sure you don't miss him!

You can listen and download two live performances here -

He has just released an album called 'She' which you can purchase here

Waltzing with a Shadow

I had no means of filming when I signed up for the 48hr horror film competition. A camera in a short film contest is like a bun on a burger... quite important. So my friends and I chipped in and bought an expensive camera from an electronics store with the intention of getting a refund and giving it back, thanks to their amazing 2 week return policy. Unfortunately we had to return the camera immediately after the competition was finished so we could all eat again. On that last day before giving it back, thoughts entered my lazy brain that this filming device should be used one last time. So, I decided to make a experimental short, a capricious idea filmed alone and under 15 minutes. I wanted to see if I could create something on a whim.....turned out a little daft, but as you can see, I can dance really well...
This short film is about a rosy cheeked man who prepares himself for a dream.
A dance with his long lost love, waltzing to their favorite song

'The late night movie' is a short film I made for a 48 hour horror film competition called 'Bloody valentines' that my friends and I entered. All movies had to be under 8 minutes and be filmed and edited in 2 days starting on a Friday night and ending Sunday. Each team was given a package containing a horror sub-genre , weapon, prop and line of dialogue, my sub-genre was zombie, the assigned prop was a cereal box, weapon was a hammer, and line of dialogue was 
"For God's sakes, take the stairs!"
It was made in the cold cold winter of Montreal, and because of the cold, mostly filmed in my apartment

..... We lost.....
