A new Instagram series is hitting devices and screens across the nation with the release of Session Moths.
The five-part mini-series was born on the back of the LIT Ladies exhibition last October; when creators Katie Kidd and Georgia Murphy submitted a riso print of the aforementioned ‘session moths’. The theme of the exhibition was based on the renowned slang term “Keep her lit”, which became a focal point of inspiration for the creators.
We instantly loved the idea of visualizing this well-known Dublin slang. Moths? In heels with a glass of wine in hand? Hilarious!
Katie and Georgia, an art director and copywriter from Boys & Girls, teamed up with Alex Murphy on animation and Dean Jones from Raygun on sound; to bring the project to fruition. A collaboration through and through, the four also chimed in to coordinate voice-acting for each character.
“We approached animator Alex Murphy to work with us on bringing our moths (who are named after us — Katherine and Gina) to life. We recorded dialogue and mixed sound with Dean Jones at Raygun. It was a collaborative process throughout. We were adding bug-related jokes up to the very last minute!”.
The series follows the escapades of two session moths out on the town, jam-packed with humorous puns and comical one-liners. New episodes of the show will be released every Friday over the next five weeks, and we’ve heard the third episode is specifically not to be missed.
