CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
7 - 9 SEPTEMBER
A beautiful animation of one of Dylan Thomas’s lesser known poems, produced for a season marking the centenary of his birth. Launched as an exclusive on BBC iPlayer on National Poetry Day, this short adaptation introduced his work to a new audience. To complement the reading by Michael Sheen we used photography, CG, graphics and stopframe to create a living collage with numerous layers to combine symbolic and literal elements and evoke a dreamlike, immersive feel. Produced by BBC Wales, the animation was made by Aardman and the soundtrack was composed by John Hardy Music and performed by BBC NOW.
