Here we go again

I finally got around to starting this new blog to track my personal journey thru directing a second animated feature film.
I had started one back 2008 which became a private place for crew and investors to share artwork and ideas during development.

I enjoyed keeping "The Blog of Kells" during and after making "The Secret of Kells" so I will try to document the process of this new film here.
I hope the fans who followed "The Blog of Kells" will join me again for this new adventure.

In the last few weeks the finance finally closed and the production has begun to really kick off - with all the pressure and stress that implies.
Thankfully I have a great team around me including many friends from The Secret of Kells .

We are presently finalizing the animatic and  making model sheets , animation tests , layouts and location designs .. its a hectic and fun time.

Just to have a few pictures on the first post I added a few concepts I made from the trailer we did back in 2009.
The story has  changed a lot and the design has evolved over the years but I feel at its core we are still moving towards the cartoon I wanted to make back then.

"A Melancholy Musical Comedy for Kids"



  1. Brilliant! I'm glad you decided to make a blog with this film too. Good luck with all of it. Looking forward to seeing more of it.
