THE BANKSY JOB

SYNOPSIS

March 2004. The artist known as Banksy illegally erects a ten-foot statue in a small square off Shaftsbury Avenue in central London. Titled ‘The Drinker’, this sculpture is a replica of Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’ – with a traffic cone placed on its head. The only clue as to who put it there is a stencil on the plinth that merely says ‘Banksy’.

Then, one day, in broad daylight, masked thieves pull up with a flatbed truck and cart ‘The Drinker’ away… a reporter from a national newspaper receives a ransom note from a man calling himself AK47, claiming to represent a group of ‘art terrorists’ calling themselves ‘ART KAIDA’ After several years back and forth between the media, Banksy and Art Kaida, it is alleged that the artist called Banksy ‘arranged’ for the statue to be destroyed by any means necessary…

Now, after all this time, it seems that AK47 is about to breathe new life into the saga…

SHORT SYNOPSIS

When Mr and Mrs Peach’s neighbours emigrate to Australia, they leave the grieving Peaches anxiously twitching the net curtains of their suburban home wondering who will arrive next door. The new neighbours, Mr and Mrs Chapman, prove to be far from the ideal couple the Peaches had dreamed of. They are loud, rude and aggressive.

Mr Peach takes an instant dislike to the “flash” Chapmans aggravated by the fact that, as a desperately bad salesman, he is getting deeper and deeper into debt. Mr Peach is struggling to hold onto his job, his house and his mind and as the bills mount up and the creditors move in he begins to slip further and further into his own interior world, obsessing about the new neighbours and increasingly perceiving them as the enemy.

It is not long before he is spying on their every move, making complaints against them, even damaging their property. The Chapmans, outraged at his “interfering, busybody” behaviour, begin to retaliate, until both sets of neighbours are caught up in an intensifying feud. Their problems escalate out of all proportion and when Mr Chapman dares to stamp on Mr Peach’s prize winning pansies a fight breaks out in the garden and Chapman beats up Peach.

Mr Peach finally deems his neighbours responsible for all his problems and in one final conflict, decides to make them pay.

HALO EFFECT

Nominated for 5 IFTA Awards

Daly’s second feature film, The Halo Effect, features Stephen Rea as the inaptly named Fatso, a decent, hard-working man struggling to keep his late night city centre chip shop in business, and, less successfully, to keep his gambling addiction under control. Playing Good Samaritan to an assortment of deadbeats, Fatso, it seems, can save everyone but himself. As his debts spiral out of control, he is forced to risk everything in a desperate bid to survive.
