Tomm ventured to Berlin this past weekend to attend the 2015 European Film Awards and what a spectacular night it turned out to be. More than 3,000 members of the European Film Academy – filmmakers from across Europe – had voted for this year’s awards and Tomm picked up the award for Best Animated Feature Film for Song of the Sea.
The young heroes of director Paul O’Muiris’ self-aware Eddie of the Realms Eternal wormhole between reality and fantasy. One is a slacker elf called Hobi, and the other is a regular dude named Eddie. And together, they’re descended from (much more) mythic ancestors whose union for generations protected the Realms Eternal from evil — until now. It’s a perfect set-up for a buddy comedy adventure, with deep but accessible roots.
“When Amazon Studios came to us with the script, I felt an odd connection to this story about a lonely little kid pulled out of school into a fantasy world of magic and monsters,” O’Muiris told Cartoon Brew. “Then I realized why: Bob Roth and Bill Motz, the writers and creators of Eddie of the Realms Eternal, had written for many of the Disney television shows I’d grown up with, like Aladdin,Hercules, and Tarzan.”
Since we had such success with the Secret of Kells limited edition prints we decided that we would release a range from Song of the Sea. They are available to purchase in our print store and there are images that will suit all tastes.
Here is a little look at some of what is on offer.
