I’ve finally finished a second series of my animated webseries Poxy Bleedin’ Shop over the course of the pandemic and I’ve gotten some of Ireland’s best known comedians involved such as Karl Spain, Tadhg Hickey, Emma Doran and Bernard Casey as voice talent….

‘The Council Workers’

Wait for it.

Noel Barrett, from Leopards on a Bike animation, writes:

We’re a small group of amateur animators from County Clare and we just finished this short comedy video about two lazy council workers in rural Ireland.

Everything in it is made out of paper and paint and random stuff like pebbles and Jay Cloths

‘Morning Glory’.

By Mark Fisher, who writes:

 I’m an independent animation director. I recently finished this short film (above) that I’ve debuted online this week.

It’s a zero budget DIY film made over 2 years in my spare time. It’s a labor of love, and after the hard work of making it, it’s now the hard work of getting it seen by people….
