Sula i bhfad!
Featuring the work of Katie Sherlock, Carol Freeman, & Caitlyn Rooke!
Delighted to announce that Rory A. Stewart’s new film WIld Horses, will be premiering at Cannes this year. PP’s Eimhin provided the illustrations for the poster.
Be sure to check out the rest of Rory’s work here: http://rorystewartfilms.co.uk
Here’s some process from the illustration:
We just spent the day sorting and archiving all the traditional work from An tEarrach Thiar, Eimhin’s contribution to the upcoming Cúl an Tí project, helmed by Ross Murray & Nicole Storck at the Cartoon Saloon!
We currently have A4 & A3 scene illustrations from the film available to purchase from our online shop: LINK
An tEarrach Thiar was originally written by Máirtín Ó Direáin, with musical interpretation by Lisa Hannigan, Kíla & Fionnuala Ní Chosáin.

Here are two timelapses we set up for some dialogue scenes from An Gadhar Dubh.
In the second video you can see the jaw substitutions on the bottom of frame, alongside the dialogue X-sheet.
We used a similar method for all characters with dialogue, many of which needed multiple angles; so for Peadar, the main character, we have 25 mouth shapes (9 key mouth shapes with softer variations for nuanced performance) and 25 heads in a full rotation. Thankfully the heads viewed from the back don’t require jaw substitutions (we’re not that mad), but we ended up with about 440 different jaws for just that one character.
There are more posts on the processes and techniques we’ve developed for An Gadhar Dubh here: LINK
