The Rooster, The Crocodile and The Night Sky

Pádraig Fagan’s The Rooster, The Crocodile and The Night Sky is this week’s Irish Film Board​ Friday Short!

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:
