Production has completed on Irish short documentary Gone Viral, from writer/director Charlo Johnson. This has seen the release of the poster and trailer for the film.
Gone Viral, which was filmed in Tipperary, tells the story of two Irish mental health nurses, Senan Byrne and Eddie Whelan (a.k.a the Fupin Eejits) who have entertained millions of people worldwide with comedic 6-second short videos, also known as Vines. Vine, which is owned by Social Media giant Twitter, recently assigned the first international Creator Spotlight title to Senan, essentially designating him as being the best Vine creator outside of the US. For now however, the Fupin Eejits continue to work together as professional full-time nurses.
