The Kilkenny, Ireland-based Cartoon Saloon animation studio gave a presentation on Tuesday night at Woodbury University in Burbank, California. This was the same presentation that Cartoon Saloon gave at the 2014 Comic-Con International in San Diego the previous week, repeated for ASIFA-Hollywood members before Cartoon Saloon went back to Ireland.

The presentation was on Cartoon Saloon’s second theatrical animated feature, Song of the Sea, due to be finished and released in America later this year by GKIDS.  The presenters were Tomm Moore, Cartoon Saloon’s co-founder and the director of the two features, and Paul Young, another studio co-founder, the producer of the two features and one of the character voices in The Secret of Kells.  They also sold and signed the just-published “making of” coffee-table art book of Cartoon Saloon’s first theatrical feature, the March 2009 The Secret of Kells.  The July 2014 book is Designing The Secret of Kellswritten by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, the Kells art director.
