DT Finn

D.T.Finn

D.T. Finn is a dilapidated animation creative, exhausted and sometimes cynical after years of TV production and commercial work.

A pious Christian Brother education encouraged D.T.Finn to have a profound and uncynical empathy with national public figures. Finn currently expresses these empathetic feelings through his reverent and respectful, though seemingly satirical pseudo-political animations

.D.T.Finn firmly intends to become an overnight success, even after 30 years in the business. D.T.Finn delusionally expects to spend the last decades of his life wealthy, comfortable, world-famous and secluded in a fortified dwelling house, on top of a hill, in the middle of nowhere, far from the dubious benefits of broadband.

D.T.Finn has written numerous novels, alas all unpublished (largely due to their lurid, slightly science fictional content). Disgracefully, Finn has abandoned more short films than he cares to remember. He is working on an animated feature.

But first... A cutbacks short film - completed in June 2010...
