Alan Holly’s ‘CODA’ nominated for Cartoon d’Or Award August 25, 2015

Hand drawn animated short, Coda, has been nominated for the Cartoon d’Or award!

Selected from a shortlist of 31 films, Coda will compete against five nominees for the accolade of best European animated short at this years Cartoon Forum in Toulouse, France, when the Cartoon d’Or award ceremony takes place on September 17th.

Directed by Alan Holly with Ciaran Deeney Producing for And Maps And Plans,  Sound Post for Coda – which nabbed over 20 international awards on its festival run (see below) – took place here at Screen Scene, where Michelle Fingleton was the Sound Designer, Garrett Farrell handled the Sound mix, and Andy Kirwan provided the spot effects.

The result of two years of painstaking work by a small team of dedicated artists, the film tells the story of a recently deceased souls encounter with Death.

Produced under the Frameworks animation scheme funded by the IFB, RTÉ and the Arts Council, Coda features the voice talent of Brian Gleeson (Love/Hate) and Orla Fitzgerald (Wind That Shakes The Barley).
