Funded by the Irish Film Board’s Frameworks film funding scheme and produced by Barley Films in 2007-2008, The Rooster was created using cardboard, crepe paper, tinfoil and dreamy Super 8 footage of a glittery blue velvet Night Sky.
Below are some concept images and photographs from the making of the film:

Pádraig and Eimhin did a bit of travelling with the film too:
Eimhin spotted those two young foxes last week alongside the abandoned train track on North Circular, soon to be restored as a tram line. One would periodically hide in the bushes and pounce out at the other as they waited for them. This went on for several minutes, as they slowly traversed the length of the track.
