Filmmaker Barry Fahy (BOY RACER)

I smiled…. I smiled the biggest goofiest smile I have. I was delighted to hear the audience felt that sense of wonder and playfulness that comes with innocence. I think people really got it and took something positive from the film.

Director Biography – Brice Blanloeil (DELIRIOUS)

Fea067faa6 headshot

After a few years making web commercials with work experience in Paris, London, Barcelona & California, i’m now shifting to new project such as music videos and short length movies which have always been my first passions.

Director Statement

The first idea R!X had was to make some kind of multicam live video from one of his song. It’s a long song and I felt it could be quite boring especially for viewers on the web. At the same time, I was fed up with all the thing around Covid 19 (Toilet papers / Pangolins, Pasta…) so I decided to add all these absurd items into the cooking of the video.
