Cartoon Saloon

Cartoon Saloon is a animation company based in Kilkenny, Ireland. This company has had Academy Award and BAFTA nominations within the past few years for their works The Secret of Kells and The Song of the Sea.

They caught my eye because of their 2D style. They create everything so that there is the illusion of depth with only 2D planes. I also relate with their stories as they focus on Celtic history and mythology.

Their upcoming feature film, The Breadwinner, will take tell a story very different from their previous ones. Based on the book by Deborah Ellis it tells the story of a young girl growing up in Afghanistan in 2001. It is set for release in 2017 and I can't wait to go see it.
