Here’s a little bit of a line test for a 3 minute piece I’m working on at the moment. Designs are by Marie Thorhauge, most of the animation was done by Sean Mccarron and Svend Bonde, I directed & storyboarded the animatic and animated the first three shots (because my board was too horrendously rough to hand them off). It was great fun to interpret a lovely old song called An Greasai Brog. The singer is Muireann Nic Amhlaibh, the song is produced by Iarla O’Lionard & Kieran Lynch. It’s for a documentary produced in association with Sonta which will be broadcast next Christmas on TG4 where traditional Irish songs are recorded afresh and the Carton Saloon get to animate to each of them.
Though the budget and schedule are tight the guys working with me know how to make a very small budget look good. I used Flash for the first few shots but the guys used TV Paint. There are 10 other songs at various stages of production with various teams & individuals directing, designing, animating on each of them. .
Here’s a picture I took & treated of a great gargoyle in a place called Castle Oliver in Limerick. A bit spooky. I ran away after taking the picture.
More vague concept stuff.
