A specialist in cutesy animation with a dash of dark humour.
Irish animator Conor Finnegan is a bit of a jack-of-all-trades. His reel contains 3D and 2D, hand drawn animation, stop-motion, Claymation and live action with puppets and live action with actors. Refusing to stick to one style, he often mixes techniques according to what works for a project.
Fear of Flying – his most recent short film – uses several different animation methods to tell story of a cute little bird with no inclination to use his wings. He’s picked up a good few awards for it while it’s been touring the festival circuit.
