Pins and Needles
A story about the new kid on the plot trying to fit in.
Pins and Needles is a 3D animated short film aimed at children, produced with the help of Brown bag Films Dublin. It premiered on RTE Jr in Ireland on Christmas Eve 2018 and has since gone on to be nominated for multiple film & television awards.
We knew we wanted to tell a story about relationships - the good and the bad. These are universal themes that resonate with children and adults alike. The idea of a cactus which is literally hard to get close to was rife with potential. The outcome is an emotional, funny and entertaining little short, with some fantastic character design.
