Rooster Annie Nominee

The short film I spent summer 07-summer 08 working on with Pádraig Fagan (with assist from Orla and Eamonn) "The Rooster the Crocodile and the Nights Sky" has been nominated for an Annie Award. There is talk of us going over for the ceremonies in February, hopefully with some Culture Ireland support. Fair play again Fagan.

In additional Rooster news: I'm giving a talk at Ballyfermot tomorrow, let's hope it goes well, despite the tiredness I feel now and will continue to feel tomorrow morning.

Here's an updated pencil test with the finished animation. Comping and background jiggery pokery soon.
