Youghal Clock Tower

James Horgan

Description

Youghal Clock Tower is a light hearted and playful exploration of the possibilities of animation in its infancy. Depicting the well-known landmark dancing into frame, the clock gate comes to life, spinning and dancing through the main street of the Cork town. A representation of the clock tower is given as a trophy for best first animation at the Galway Film Fleadh every year.It should be noted that 1910 is only the film’s estimated date of production; while it dates from this period, the exact year is unknown.’ (Notes by The Experimental Film Club, sourced from http://www.ifi.ie/film/youghal-clock-tower/ on August 5th 2016)
