Back in 2009 Irish animator Tomm Moore made quite the first impression with his debut feature The Secret of Kells
. An absolutely gorgeous piece of work with no interest at all in aping the current wave of CGI animation that embraced the sort of subtle and nuanced storytelling that has made Miyazaki a beloved name around the globe, Kells
would go on to be nominated for an Oscar while marking Moore as a director to watch. And now there's something to see, with the arrival of the first official teaser for Moore's sophomore effort, Song Of The Sea
The story of the last Seal Child's journey home. After their mother's
disappearance, Ben and Saoirse are sent to live with Granny in the city.
When they resolve to return to their home by the sea, their journey
becomes a race against time as they are drawn into a world Ben knows
only from his mother's folktales. But this is no bedtime story; these
fairy folk have been in our world far too long. It soon becomes clear to
Ben that Saoirse is the key to their survival.
While there was a proof of concept trailer released quite some time back as the production was raising funds this is the first proper look at the actual film itself. And it's absolutely beautiful. Take a look below.
