A week of music and magic.

I Just wanted to share a few snaps and thoughts from the past weeks recording.
I think 99% of its there now with just maybe a few last things to do before the mix.

Next weekend Ill be in Sofia for the recording of the orchestra which is really exciting.
Im already dreaming about the next project - its a pity somehow that they take so long to get to this stage .

Watching and hearing the musicians playing is magical thing for me , I realise how special and collabrative the filmmaking process is.

After The Secret of Kells I toyed with the idea that Song of the Sea could be a comic that I could make either alone or with a small team. 

But the story was about music at its heart and I knew it had to be an animated film , the music is such an important part of the story , the tone and the atmosphere and much of the emotional impact is carried by the music.

The collabration between Bruno and Kila has been even more enmeshed this time around , I am excited to see it all mixed and edited with the visuals over the coming months.

Bruno listening to the song of the sea.

Jean Phillipe waiting to play his part.

Rossa plays Spud the Fairys part in the fairy fort sequence.

Rossa has an amazing collection of percussion and sound makers , even a set of ancient bones from
viking times that he plays.

We recorded in the beautiful setting of Pickering Forest where Kila have recorded most of their albums .. A really fascinating place full of history abd character.

  1. Bruno Coulais is returning with Kíla? That's absolutely fantastic! I adored their collaboration in The Secret of Kells. Also thank you so much for all the updates and behind-the-scenes. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing this film.
