Lightbox: Cartoon Saloon’s Tomm Moore on ‘Song of the Sea’ and ‘The Prophet’

// Featured, Interviews


In the latest episode of our animated mini-documentary series Lightbox Skwigly meets Cartoon Saloon Creative Director and co-founder Tomm Moore.
Established in 1999, Cartoon Saloon has grown into one of Ireland’s most respected studios, producing television shows, short films and full-length feature films including the hugely acclaimed The Secret of Kells (Dir. Tomm Moore/Nora Twomey, 2009) and Song of the Sea (Dir. Tomm Moore, 2014).
Following our recent interview on the production of Song of the Sea, Skwigly caught up with Tomm during the most recent edition of the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival to reflect on the aftermath of the film as well as his involvement in Roger Allers’ recent animated adaptation of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, for which he co-directed (with Ross Stewart) the segment On Love.
