The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with Sean Lionadh, Director of a short film entitled “Too Rough.” This film comes to us from Scotland and has qualified for Oscar consideration on two separate occasions, as well as won numerous film festival awards and a BAFTA. We chat with Sean about how he got into filmmaking and specifically “Too Rough.” The conversation was lively and fascinating. Have a listen, and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
About Sean Lionadh
Sean Lìonadh is a poet, writer, filmmaker and musician from Glasgow, known for his critically-acclaimed, BAFTA Scotland winning short film Too Rough and visual poem Time for Love which reached millions of people online, won a 2019 Royal Television Society award and was translated into five languages. It also inspired a Ted talk and a poetry collection titled ‘Not Normal Anymore’. Sean worked with the Royal Opera House as the librettist on modern opera Honest Skin, live next season. His band, LÌONADH, create dark poetry-infused rock-pop.
With producers Alfredo Covelli and Ross McKenzie, Sean is developing his first feature film, Nostophobia, which explores the terror of adolescent intimacy and trauma. Sean runs poetry workshops with young people, and is keen to work closely with the LGBTQ+ community within schools, community groups and institutions.
After a night of intoxication, a hungover and hysterical Nick wakes up next to his boyfriend Charlie and must conceal him from his own homophobic and dysfunctional family.
In our second segment, we chat about our thoughts on “Too Rough.” We also highlight recent articles posted to tggeeks.com in the past week. As always, we have our birthdays, and we have the ever-popular feedback segment.
We welcome your feedback. Please, let us know what you think. Good or bad, we want to know, and you could receive a shoutout in the feedback segment. Thank you for listening; we really do appreciate you taking time out of your day to spend with us.
