'Bernard Dunne's Mythical Heroes' Second Series Begins on RTÉ
03 Dec 2018 :
Commissioned by RTE's Pauline McNamara, it is a 6 x 20 minute children's series blending live action, animation (by Ian Kenny) and VFX (Egg Post Production).

'Bernard Dunne's Mythical Heroes' begins its second run on Monday on RTE 2 at 5.05 and will also be available on the RTE Player. Commissioned by RTE's Pauline McNamara, it is a 6 x 20 minute children's series blending live action, animation (by Ian Kenny) and VFX (Egg Post Production). The show re-tells classic Irish myths in a fast, funny and visually sumptuous way to appeal a new generation of Irish kids aged 8-12.

It is supported by BAI's Sound And Vision Fund. It was produced by Firebrand Productions' Mark Warren and directed by Hugh Farley.

Presented by former world champion boxer Bernard Dunne, it features Jack Walsh, Sophie-Jo Wasson, Gavin Fullam, Ali Hardiman, Ross Gaynor, Mella Caron and Youseff Quinn. Casting was by Thyrza Ging at Louise Kiely.

Writing credits are: Hugh Farley, Mark Warren and Dee Roycroft.

Director Of Photography is by Ronan Fox, Costume design by Adelle Hickey, Make-up by Tee Elliot, Production Design by Carolyn Croke.

Post production was handled by Egg where Malcolm Maloney cut the show. Nik Panteris was the colourist.

Hugh Farley, the show's director told IFTN, 'The project was a unique opportunity to bring together all the elements of entertainment that I love: comedy, high visual style, silly jokes, movie references and gorgeous animation. Producer Mark Warren assembled a uniquely gifted production team, each one of which left his or her own unique fingerprints on the series. Our talented cast brought these mythic characters into rich three dimensional life in all their vanities and virtues. My hope is that the series resonates with our young audience in as powerful a way as the children's programmes I loved when I was growing up.'

The promo for the show is available here

The show will transmit Monday, Wednesday and Friday for two weeks commencing on Monday 3rd December.
