In the latest episode of our animated mini-documentary series Lightbox, Skwigly meets Cartoon Saloon Creative Director and co-founder Tomm Moore.
Established in 1999, Cartoon Saloon has grown into one of Ireland's most respected studios, producing television shows, short films and full-length feature films including the hugely acclaimed "The Secret of Kells" (Dir. Tomm Moore/Nora Twomey, 2009) and "Song of the Sea" (Dir. Tomm Moore, 2014).
Following our recent interview on the production of his latest feature, Skwigly caught up with Tomm during the most recent edition of the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival to reflect on the reception of "Song of the Sea" as well as his involvement in Roger Allers' recent animated adaptation of "Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet" (produced by Salma Hayek), for which he co-directed (with Ross Stewart) the segment "On Love".

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
