The Irish Film Institute in Dublin and Animation Skillnet will present a day of discussion, master classes and screenings on April 26.
French writer, director and CG artist Fred Burdy, now based in Dublin studio Windmill Lane, will start the day with the first masterclass on the making of his short Tríd An Stoirm.
Terry Kenny, video game animator, will lead the second masterclass on Animation for Games with Adult content, sharing experience he’s picked up from working on games such as Manhunt and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.
The day continues with a panel discussion about the styles and themes of adult animation and compare with those in popular kids’ animations for film or TV.
The panel will also include Jason Tammemagi, creator of TV shows like Fluffy Gardens and Planet Cosmo, and Leanne Preston, Company Director and Founder of Bright Box Creative whose experience in children’s media markets includes six years at Nickelodeon.
The panel discussion will be followed by a screening of a programme of short animations that will include a range of work, along with the Annecy-nominated and César winning short Kiki of Montparnasse.
