THE IRISH Film Board (IFB) and RTÉ in association with the Arts Council have selected five projects for funding under the Frameworks animation scheme.
Looking for animators with imagination, visual flair and a commitment to innovative animation, Frameworks aims to add to the range and scope of Irish animation. While the scheme hopes to encourage new animators, it is also available to assist established animators who may wish to realise more personal and creative projects.
The films that have been selected this year are: ‘The Trial of Solomon’, Steve Woods, CEL Division; ‘Rehy Fox’, Naomi Woods, Loophead Studios; ‘The Skeleton Woman’, Nora Twomey, Cartoon Saloon; ‘Pullin the Devil by the Tail’, Steve McCollum and ‘Butterfly’, Glenn Marshall, Dream.
The selection panel consisted of Rod Stoneman from the Board, Siobhán Bourke
from the Arts Council, Stephen Plunkett from RTÉ Independent Productions Unit and Ken Anderson from Red Kite in Edinburgh. (CD)
