'Wilde Stories' is an artistic multimedia project around Oscar Wilde's collection of fairytales 'The Happy Prince and Other Tales'. The project brought together Irish artists to re-imagine the stories in a broadcast radio series for RTÉ lyric fm, a half-hour animated film and a live event in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar.

My roles included creative direction, photography, videography & graphic design for the project - directing & motion designing the animated film (scored by composer Michael Gallen, performed and recorded by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra) with visuals by reknowned fine artist Felicity Clear & myself.
