We thought this was worth sharing.
The Secret of Kells is a recent animated film by independent studio, Cartoon Saloon, that exemplifies some of the wonder that 2D animation is sill able to inspire.
The story follows young Brendan, an illuminator in training in his quest to complete the Book of Kells . The work is pretty impressive, especially considering it was produced in Kilkenny Ireland, a town of only a few thousand people, and made for only $8 million.
The work showcases slick animation with a page taken from an the original Book of Kells.
Oscar nominations aside, this is an impressive work and I’m looking forward seeing it to when it releases stateside this April.
