Directed by Alan Holly, Coda is the culmination of two years of painstaking work by a small team of dedicated animation artists. The film tells the story of a lost soul who stumbles drunkenly through the city. In a park, death finds him and shows him many things.
This nine-minute, hand-drawn animated film is voiced by Brian Gleeson (Standby, The Stag, Love/Hate) and Orla Fitzgerald (The Wind that Shakes the Barley).¬† Alan Holly’s previous short film, Old Fangs, which he co-directed, was selected for Sundance Film Festival.
After premiering at last year’s Galway Film Fleadh, where it picked up the FICC Don Quijote Award, the film has gone on to screen at over 60 festivals, with 15 more between now and the end of the year. It has picked up a Silver Hugo for Best Animated Short at the 50th Chicago International Film Festival, Best Animation at Kino Fest, Most Creative Short Award at The Edinburgh Short Film Festival, and best of all Best Animated Short at South by Southwest.
Coda¬†was produced¬†under the Frameworks animation scheme which is funded by the¬†IFB, RT√â and the Arts Council.
