Why Song of the Sea is making waves at the cinema

Along the coasts of Ireland and Scotland stories were once told of beautiful, shape-shifting creatures that would emerge from the sea and become human on land.

Selkies, as they were known, are the inspiration for a new movie, Song of the Sea, which is taking on the likes of Disney Pixar.

Director Tom Moore and David Rawle, who plays the role of Ben in the movie, told BBC Breakfast about how the film was made, and how they sneaked into the Oscars at the very last second.
