December 12th 2005: The inaugural Nokia Darklight Pocket Movie Challenge has been won by Irish film-makers. Lorcan Finnegan and Ray Mongey were respectively awarded the top prizes in the professional and newcomer categories. Over 200 films from more than 10 countries were entered during the one month challenge, with representations in a wide variety of genres.
Lorcan Finnegan's production, "Changes", is a creative mix of illustration, photography and live-action that tells the story of two caterpillars wildly in love embarking on a journey of change.
Ray Mongey's animation, "A little closer to home", tells the story of a couple who are separated for the summer and how technology can make us feel a little closer to home.
