David Knight - 11th Sept 2017

Jack Barraclough collaborates with animator Venla Linna to create this excellent video for Seamus Fogarty, where the harrowing tale of Carlow Town is told through expressive choreography from Fogarty and bandmates, and with complementary animated drawings.

Barrowclough sticks to a black and white palette with the band - where their unlikely recruitment to choreography is part of the fun – while Linna's animation starts out as graphic lines, then becomes more figurative and the story takes a chilling turn, even recalling Gerald Scarfe's legendary animation for Pink Floyd's Another Brick In The Wall at one point.
