Eoin Duffy, George Takei and Jamie Horgan.
Award-winning 'The Missing Scarf' has been named as one of ten animated shorts on the longlist for Academy Award consideration, having been whittled down from an original fifty-six pictures.

Originally funded as part of the Irish Film Board's Frameworks scheme, 'The Missing Scarf' became eligible for Oscar consideration after picking up the James Horgan Award for Best Animation at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh, compounding upon its success with a further win at the LA Shorts Fest.

Further festival nods for the short include the award for Best European Short Film at the Valladolid Film Festival, a win for Best Animation at the New Hampshire Film Festival, and an Honourable Mention at the Blackrock Animation Festival.

Dubbed 'a black comedy that explores fears of the unknown', 'T he Missing Scarf' is written and directed by Eoin Duffy ('On Departure'), produced by Jamie Hogan of Belly Creative and features the voice of internet celebrity and former 'Star Trek' star George Takei.

'The Missing Scarf' was named on the Academy's Short Films and Feature Animation longlist after screenings and preliminary rounds of voting held in New York and Los Angeles. Further screenings will be held in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco in December to determine the three to five nominees to be drawn from the current ten and put forward for Academy Awards consideration on Oscar Sunday, March 2nd 2014.
