Sarah Buckle 

BA [Hons] Animation

Dublin-based artist interested in mixed media and experimental filmmaking. I also enjoy 2D illustration and animation. Here features a selection of shots from my final year animated short 'Comradery Coach'. Directing my own film has been a great learning process as well as an opportunity to experiment with different animation mediums and incorporate them into storytelling.

Project Description

'Comradery Coach' is about an inconsiderate girl who falls into a magical land where a friendly giant rabbit teaches her lessons on how to be nice.
My aim in this project was the creation of a light-hearted story told with combinations of different animation mediums. 'Comradery Coach' was an opportunity to experiment with various methods of alternative and mixed media animation while still containing 2D hand drawn sections. It combines my love of both traditional and non-traditional animation as well as my love of stories about magic and friendship.
Love is the main theme in ‘Comradery Coach’, both in the story and in the process of creating it.
