The Kilkenny-based group boast a staggering 200 million views on their six-second vine clips, documenting their comedic antics over the past 18 months.
Charlo Johnson, Senan Byrne and Eddie Whelan’s documentary ‘Gone Viral’ is to screen at the Galway Film Fleadh this weekend with the potential for an Oscar nomination if it wins the category.
The group have also been invited to Docutah international Documentary Film Festival in September as special guests.
Fupin Eejits enjoyed a spotlight feature in the Vine app, the first spotlight section going to a non-US user to 40 million registered Vine users globally.
Not only does the content showcase the massive potential for Irish media talent to contribute to new waves of digital storytelling, but the huge success of independent filmmakers to shoot quality footage at home, and even on mobile phones.
On their plans for the future, Senan has stated: "We're doing it for enjoyment. It's a form of expression and a way of getting our jokes out to the public. We've been approached by a few production companies and people are looking at us to audition for various projects but we haven't agreed to anything yet".
