Siriol Productions’ animated Under Milk Wood, which was made by the Welsh company in the early 1990s.
‘Cardiff based Siriol Productions have been commissioned by S4C, in association with the BBC and Onward Production, to create a fifty minute fully animated version of this Dylan Thomas classic. Their work complements perfectly the original and highly acclaimed BBC soundtrack which features the voice of Richard Burton.
The film also represents a new venture into adult animation for the studio, whose successes to date have included the world famous SUPER TED series and THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN – a full length animated feature film, co produced with Pannonia Film of Hungary and made in association with S4C and NHK international.
With expert guidance from Professor Walford Davies, Siriol has brought Thomas’ little hill-clinging town of less than five hundred souls vividly to life. As the town emerges from the ‘starless and bible black night’ to reveal its very individual inhabitants, every character gains a depth that makes this animated version of Under Milk Wood both entertaining and stimulating.
