Eoin Duffy’s “The Missing Scarf” with George Takei

Vancouver-based Irish director/animator/writer Eoin Duffy swept the film fest circuit and made the Academy Awards short list with “The Missing Scarf” a 2D/3D short he describes as an “animated dark-comedy, masquerading as a classic kid-friendly morality-tale.”

Narrated with surprising passion by George Takei, the film was in production for almost seven months and was funded by The Irish Film Board in conjunction with Raidió Teilifís Éireann (Ireland’s national broadcaster) and The Arts Council of Ireland.

Eoin Duffy: “My first short-film, “On Departure”, and then “The Missing Scarf” are both were centered around the same event, a recent death in my family.

“The first was an emotional display of the event; while “The Missing Scarf” dealt with the aftermath: Primarily the seeming amplification of everyday fears – fear of the unknown, failure, rejection and finally death. The film’s script mirrors my internal debate on the subject – comparing the pros and cons of each, allowing the audience to draw their own conclusions.”
