Kealan O’Rourke’s short animation The Boy In The Bubble uses the voice of Alan Rickman to tell the story of Rupert, a 10 year old boy, who falls hopelessly in love for the first time. When it all goes terribly wrong, he wishes never to experience heartache again. Turning to a book of magic, he invokes a spell to shield him from emotion forever. It was produced by Brian Willis for Igloo Films.
