Éalu Animation Release
Directed and drawn by Trish McAdam
Motion Graphics – Marc Sherwin
The images in the animation are inspired by conversations Cormac had with Trish about his creative ambitions during the recording and writing of his new [concept] CD, Éalú (meaning escape) and Artist Robert Ballagh’s portrait of Cormac with birds, for the album cover. The short sequence inspired by Artist Gerald Dillon’s West of Ireland Landscape and the landscapes of fields the birds fly over, reflect on Cormac’s family connection to Wicklow and the West of Ireland and some people and objects relevant to Cormac’s own life.
The Cd’s edited music is taken from two main compositions: “Éalú” and “Slán + Breatnach”.
