Sounds of the Sea

Had a lovely day here on the Dingle penisula recording some sounds with our intrepid sound designer Felix Davin. Yesterday he was out and about too while I presented some work in progress clips at the Dingle Film Festival . 
Such a beautiful place - it inspired both Song of the Sea and Puffin Rock many years ago. Cant believe how long its bern since the last visit. 
I think this dip back into the peace and beauty of the westcoast will sustain and inspire us thru the long days in dark rooms doing the sound design and mixing.

Cartoon Movie

Yesterday we presented some clips and a trailer at Cartoon Movie in Lyon . We got a great response which is such a boost in these last crazy days of production.
Today Im going to present it  again in Anima in Brussels and then its off to digital graphics in Liege to help get the last big sequences on track. Then another day in Paris with Colm and Bruno on the music - phew !
Then I meet with Felix one of our sound designers and we will go to Dingle for some field recording next weekend.
