Some recent illustrations by Eimhin, which arrived at their destination last week
Pre-production is going on in earnest on Carol’s Frameworks funded film The Bird and the Whale!
Below you can see the paint on glass animation test we created for our pitch this summer:
This test clip was created using one of our small scale multiplane setups, with three sheets of glass: the animation of the whale and the splash occurring on the topmost layer, the sea on the the middle layer and the sky on the backmost layer. For the full scale production of the film, we shall be using our large format multiplanes, with multiple layers of animation happening at once.
As a little treat for any newcomers, here is the animation test we created for our initial pitch of Pádraig’s Frameworks funded film An Gadhar Dubh:
Here are recent T-shirt design concepts by Eimhin, along with some mockups featuring older illustrations to give an idea of what they’d look like on the shirts.
These would be produced using a 3 colour screenprint process, so will probably involve a number of colour or stencil tweaks to get them working in as neat a way as possible, as well as figuring out what colour fabrics to work with that would best suit the illustration. We might do a little voting system once we have five or six designs on-line, so you can choose whichever one will be the first to go under the screen printing press.
In the coming weeks you’ll be able to buy these shirts, as well as animated flipbooks, prints and pop-up cards, once we’ve finished with the final tweaks, so stay tuned!
