In this animated short the audience is introduced to characters from Irish folklore and mythology. These reimagined characters are placed within a contemporary setting and detective like narrative.
The style, influenced by the structure of graphic novels, is a collection of animated panels used to control the mood and pace of the piece. The methods of production include a combination of traditional animation techniques, illustration, and motion graphics.
