Song of the sea

In the past months I've been doing some animation on Tomm Moore's new feature film development. It's a lovely story inspired by irish mithology called "Song of the Sea".. and it's going to be 2D!!
This is the movie teaser made by Cartoon Saloon (animation, character design and bgs) and Digital Graphics (compositing and animation effects).

We animated everything on wacoms. The guys at Cartoon Saloon used Tv Paint, while Alf and I worked on Flash.
The animation has a traditional approach, frame by frame, no tweens. Brush tool for the rough and pencil tool for the cleanup.
Hope you'll enjoy it.
