Hi all, I hope you’ve enjoyed the films I’ve been posting the last few days. Here’s a bit of background on the project and how the films were put together.

Behind the Scenes at PURE Wicked 2012

A glimpse at the animation process and a little bit of Tinahely too!

These films are the product of this year’s PURE Wicked Animation Film School, which took place during July in Tinahely Co. Wicklow. We had about 30 students over the two week period, and working together in groups of 5-7 they made the four films, using recycled materials and bits of rubbish.

The workshop was organised with the Tinahely Courthouse and the PURE Project, and made with the assistance of Pádraig FaganCarol Freeman and the musical stylings of Chris McLoughlin.

Here are a number of photos documenting some of the process and materials used:
