‘Fluffy McCloud’ by Conor Finnegan

Conor Finnegan’s cute l’il graduate film from the IADT National Film School in Ireland, is a mix of stop-motion, live action and hand drawn animation. It was shot in his attic on a Cannon EOS 5D, Cannon 450D and “basically any camera I could borrow from friends and siblings”.

  • Lovely piece of work! I like the way the live-action characters were integrated without compromising the style – very neat.

    This is charming and funny. Mr. Finnegan has a knack for telling a story without words, and has developed a unique style for this short. I look forward to seeing more from him.
