Co-productions are so hot right now. More and more outstanding pieces of animated history are being created across multiple studios in order to share resources, talent and funding. In times of economic upheaval and developing technology, artists are building relationships and partnerships in order to deliver works of artistic importance against the odds.
Captain Morten and the Spider Queen is one such co-production, bringing the Irish stop-motion talent of Telegael together with the Estonian studio Nukufilm and the Belgium based Grid VFX, to build the heart-warming adventure of the imaginative Morten.
Co-Director Henry Nicholson joins us, along with Telegael's Head of Puppets Emily Nicholson and Producer Robin Lyons, to show you some clips from the film and talk us through how they navigated such an epic project across the continent!
