The Secret of Kells... coming to the UK

In an earlier post I gave a link to 'The Secret of Kells' website.... there is also a 'Blog of Kells' if you are interested....

The Secret of Kells is an animated film, which intertwines historical facts with celtic mythology, a fictional tale woven around real events. Reading the blog gives a fascinating account of both the history & the mystery of this story, as well as an insight into animation & film production, the people who made it & the characters, the effort to get it into circulation etc etc, and there are some great videos on there too. The Blog of Kells charts the process from when production started back in 2005... they'd already been working on it intermittently for six years prior to that!



The film has already been released in America (lucky you!) and a distribution deal has finally been struck for the UK. I just love what I have seen of this... from the artwork, to the music... it is all full of symbology & like any good story, there are lessons to be gleaned from it. Here is something to wet your appetite, and there are more clips on youtube... It's not hard to see why it has been nominated for Oscars & Acadamy awards, as well as a win at the British Animation Awards... enjoy...
