We're delighted to present a series of acclaimed Irish short cinema, presented in association with Screen Ireland.

Today: Live-action/animation hybrid Badly Drawn Roy, written and directed by Alan Shannon. This acclaimed short provided the inspiration for the popular kids' TV show Roy.

Meet Roy, Ireland's only living animated character, born into an ordinary 'live action' family. Roy is intelligent but unfortunately for him he is badly drawn. His failure to gain steady employment finally leads him to Hollywood in search of fame, fortune and corrective surgery.
