Music Making

To celebrate my being famous now because of the last film that i made that everyone loved, I am now retiring from animation and have moved into music. I hate music, but you have to pay the bills somehow. check it out errbody:

City of Culture Film

Hello everyone!

I finally made that film for the City of Culture that I was talking about before, obviously I've been working on it all year. It's been an absolute blast. Here it is on youtube, where it didn't really upload properly, and on vimeo, where it also didn't upload properly, but in HD. Happy New Year you old bastards!

Yours bestfully,

Paul Paul Paul

Rural Savoy Cabbage

Here's an album that i just did the cover for, you should listen to it:
Edward Jecky - Relax Lads It's Alright

I originally drew this for Citóg, a weekly music thing in Galway City, at which both the rock and the roll are free. Here are some other posters i did for the very same, demonstrating varying degrees of effort and technical skill:

A drawing

Hello there. I haven't updated this thing in a while. Here's what I've been working on for the past few months:
Not really, I've been doing very little in fact. Here are two other drawings that I did a while back of a similar nature, I've put them here for you to look at and then empathize with me on a really deep level:

He Wouldn't Listen

Hello there!

I've just finished production on a new short, I've been keeping under wraps for over a year now and I'm really glad to finally release it online. It's been a crazy journey, I've loved every minute of it and I want to say a big thank you to everyone that was involved. Watch He Wouldn't Listen here.

City of Culture

Hello there.

 After a couple of weeks of being released online, it's safe to say that The Art of Making Friends has gone disgustingly viral, with a whopping 170 views, and now i'm happily moving on. Out of the many prolific animators living in Derry City, I've been chosen and given some money to make a short film that will be in some way related to the fact that said city is the UK city of culture next year.

I say chosen; it's more complicated and less prestigious than it sounds, and it definitely sounds prestigious.
Anyway, i'll be making it with students from this college, which is where i first learned to try to get cheap laughs out of people in order to justify my artistic pursuits. I'm only just getting started but i'm excited about it already, and my mind is as open as it's allowed to be when you're making a film for what is purportedly a year long celebration of self-expression. To compensate for the fact that this post is really just a big nothing, here's a picture i did for the website I didn't make:

Bye now

Here's that film I made

Hello. I have finally set up a new blog. I tried building a website for a while there but i gave up when i realized that i don't know how to build a website and that i don't have anything to put on it anyway. So this'll do for posting whatever.

I've finally taken off the password protection on my 2010 graduate film The Art of Making Friends. I was unhappy with it when i finished/gave up on it two and a half years ago, but since then it's been around the festival circuit, had a bit of a second wind and won me a few awards. So i suppose that means its good. Good enough anyway. I haven't been arsed actually fixing any of the things i didn't like about it, it's just sort of been lying around hating itself, but we've all done that before. Here it is, all fully online in it's shabby glory:
The Art of Making Friends

Not a bad effort after all i think. At least there were no mimes or dogs looking for lost bones or anything. To celebrate, here's the main man as he is now:
He's had a rough couple of years but he's a lot more well adjusted now, he does and says what he wants and he only rings his ex wife when he's really, really pished.

Here's the original documentary about a man who could be an inspiration for us all: Cornershop of Horrors

And here's a poster i made for the film that i never used for anything. It has the wee laurels on it though so it makes me feel special and justified when i look at it:

Now that's all finally done and dusted and i finally have some free time, i can start working on the other stuff i had planned, which i'll post about soon, probably. Also, i'm off tomorrow to go to this festival where the film is being screened. Free hotels and adage-defying free lunches:
