The Rooster, the Crocodile, and the Night Sky

The Rooster, the Crocodile, and the Night Sky is a tale of passion, loss, surreal comedy and explosive violence. The film is animated in a cut out style and combines a variety of elements such as cardboard, tinfoil, paint on glass animation and super 8 film footage to create a dreamy, hand-made aesthetic. It was produced by Barley films, and was funded by the Frameworks scheme.

Rooster screened at many prestigious festivals around the world, and Pádraig was nominated for an Annie Award in 2010.
