Our housed Irish Traveller families are very proud of their musical heritage and the children wanted to share their great grand daddy, Felix Doran’s musical talent through a stop motion animation. The children have grown up hearing about Felix, and listening to his and his brother Mikey’s amazing tunes and so they worked together to imagine his travels throughout Ireland in his bow top caravan, before settling in Manchester, England. The children storyboarded their ideas, learnt how to make plasticine models and filmed the animation before adding their voices and their grandaddy’s wonderful Uileann pipe playing.
