Take a Peek Behind the Scenes of Pins and Needles! #StaffShorts





Join us as we take a peek behind the curtains with Brown Bag Films Dublin-based duo Kerrie Costello and Julien Celin, for the making of their CG short animation 'Pins and Needles' which was commissioned by RTÉ Animated Shorts in 2018.

Written and directed by Kerrie and Julien, with music by Darren Hendley, 'Pins and Needles' tells the story of an outcast cactus and a rambunctious hedgehog, and shows us that true friendship comes in all forms. We wanted to find out a bit more about how the duo came up with the concept and how it all came together! And of course what they loved about the experience…

'Pins and Needles' is available online and you can watch the full short below:

And if you're still hungry for more behind-the-scenes check out this interview we did with Kerrie and Julien when the short originally launched, featuring some of the adorable concept art and detailing the development process.
