We have received an email from Paul O’Brain and are posting it on our blog in case any of our students are interested in working with Paul  We are in no way affiliated with Paul, we have no knowledge about the project and are only passing information on. We wish any student the best of luck if they are successful in working with Paul.


My name is Paul O’Brien. I’m a film maker, animator and model maker from Dublin, Ireland but currently working in London.

Are there any students who might be interested in working on the proposal for my next film. I am currently putting together a production pack to submit to the Irish Film Board with the hope of getting funding early next year.

I am looking for someone to illustrate coloured storyboards for the film and also work on some character turnarounds, expression sheets and environment designs. I need to bring the script and it’s characters to life. The film itself will be a stop-motion animated short, approx 6 minutes long. At. The moment I have a very small budget but would add to this should the funding be successful. The student will of course be credited for their work in the film.

Applicants should have a talent in showing subtle expression between characters and also have a good eye for colour. As I am in the early stages of design there is alot of scope for someone to get fully involved in the look and feel of the eventual film.

Interested students should forward examples of work (storyboards/character designs etc…) to paulanimation@yahoo.ie

My previous films can be found here vimeo.com/paulanimation and YouTube.com/littleblackbookfilms

Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
