Song of the Sea
Tomm Moore (half of the writing and directing team from Kells) has released a new crop of character stills and this description of the team's next big animated feature, Song of the Sea. And oh my goodness, we are excited for this lovely looking film. Here's the official rundown:
The story of the last Seal Child's journey home. After their mother's disappearance, Ben and Saoirse are sent to live with Granny in the city. When they resolve to return to their home by the sea, their journey becomes a race against time as they are drawn into a world Ben knows only from his mother's folktales. But this is no bedtime story; these fairy folk have been in our world far too long. It soon becomes clear to Ben that Saoirse is the key to their survival.

This extremely depressing and exceptionally haunting short film by Emanuel Strixner shows a couple of aliens gambling for their senses. It doesn't end well, but ever since I watched it, I can't stop thinking about it.
