It’s an exciting time for Irish animation with companies such as Brown Bag (Octonauts, Granny O’Grimm, I’m a Happy Hugglewug), Boulder Media (Gumballs), Cartoon Saloon (The Secret of Kells) and others achieving international audiences. There’s a special focus too in this year’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. This evening course traces a brief history of international animation, leading up to an Irish animation event in April. Over four weeks, James Armstrong of NCAD will lead participants through key moments in animation history, from early Disney through to contemporary adult. Each evening will include a feature film screening or series of shorts followed by an illustrated talk. Previous knowledge of animation is not required.
