Physically impaired toys Cat and Dog are brought to life in the animated short film Macropolis, by local creator Joel Simon from Flickerpix - the artist behind UTV's Buska & Barney.
Discarded from a factory production line and lost in the big city, Cat and Dog are forced to adapt to the world around them and set out to find their way back to their friends.
Joel was commissioned to create the film by the London 2012 Olympiad and, as an amputee himself, he says it was a real honour to be involved and to help celebrate the Olympics and Paralympics.
"I thought it would be a nice idea to have these characters, who have disabilities themselves, to progress on a story where they weren't going to be held back in their disability," he added.
The eight-minute film took a month to create and - made using a unique blend of stop motion animation, time-lapse photography and CGI - is the first of its kind for Flickerpix.
"Joel's work on Macropolis is something that everyone is excited to see across the UK, as part of our London 2012 Festival programme," Cian Smyth from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland said.
"We're excited about the level of acclaim we know Joel will receive when the work is finally presented."
Cat and Dog will make their debut on Sunday on the Belfast City Hall Big Screen at 12pm.
