Discworld inspired shot film coming from Irish film-makers

August 3rd, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

Terry Pratchett’s Discworld is a big hit in Ireland – just ask the Guards! Guards! guys – so this makes a lot of sense…

A new animated short is currently underway.
It takes elements from Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series and gives them a brand new adventure.

Entitled the Duel it will be a collaboration between staff and students from Trinity College CATC, Irish studio Giant Creative and the Irish School of Animation at Ballyfermont College. It has Sir Terry’s blessing and he is involved with both character and story development.

It will debut in 2013 at the Tercentenary Celebrations of Trinity College’s Old Library.

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
