This is a test video I made while learning After Effects.
It’s rough and messy but a good starting point for more fun. I’m going to re-do it all and finish the entire clip.
I heard this segment on Today with Pat Kenny and Paddy O’ Gorman about Community welfare grants in Tallaght. These people are already receiving all manner of Social Welfare but for emergencies they can apply for extra cash. Sounds like a great idea but it appears to attract the hardcore social welfare spongers.
The above woman is looking for money for new clothes as she got too fat.
Not to go for a job interview but to her nephew’s Christening or something.
The next girl blew me away with her request for part funding for her Da’s funeral which sounds like they wasted 1000′s of Euros on horse drawn carriages etc! I love it.
I lived with a bloke who was a keen moocher of these grants in the exact same office. He went down with a pair of the smelliest, beat up runners claiming he needed 60 quid to buy new clothes for an interview. The cut him a cheque there and then and he bought a block of hash within the hour.
I just found this; BBC: Dublin Dole office bans pyjamas! I drew the fat girl in a pink tracksuit but I should have drawn pyjamas…nuts.
